Jeddah is called the City of Art for good reason. There are more displays of public art here than perhaps any other city in the world. I have published many photos of the sculptures that dot the landscape of this Saudi Arabian city that sits on the Red Sea, and in fact I have made a special page listing the many sculptures I have featured. This particular sculpture called Two Vases is located on the Corniche which runs north and south along the sea coastline. It was a gift to the city from the late King Khaled ibn Abdul Aziz. Much of the public artwork here is larger than life, as these vases are. They were created by Egyptian artist Mustafa Senbel. I have featured several other pieces of art designed by Senbel on this blog, including The Wave, Dialogue, The Seagull, Sails, and The Fisherman’s Net.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
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. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
