I’m featuring two art pieces from Jeddah’s Corniche area which runs along its coastline of the Red Sea. These sculptures are made of open framework steel pieces and are the creation of Egyptian artist Mustafa Senbel. The beautiful image aboe is called “Sunrise.” Although you can’t tell because of the time of day and the position of the sun, this sculpture is actually colored in blue, red, and yellow. You can see the Red Sea gracing the background, and as the sun goes down each day, this sculpture is spectacular with a sunset behind it. I’ve never seen it at sunrise, but I’m sure it’s just as beautiful.
Below is Senbel’s work called “Beach Themes.” Senbel was a master of designing amazing pieces of art that depicted nature and sealife without obscuring the sea and the sky, while at the same time enhancing them. You can get an idea of how large the sculptures are by the size of the two women sitting at the base.
I have previously featured several other sculptures by Senbel. Just type in “Senbel” in the search box on the right and you will get a list of them.

Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
