Jeddah Boat Sculpture – Now Gone

Jeddah is home to hundreds of works of art that grace the landscape of the city.  Many of the sculptures used to occupy the space in the center of traffic circles, many of which have been replaced in recent years with bridges, tunnels, or normal intersections with stoplights.  Some of the sculptures have been moved to different spots off to the side in the same intersection or to totally different locations around Jeddah.  Still other sculptures have not survived, like this one. 
This boat sculpture was one of the largest sculptures of this metropolis on the Red Sea. The ship’s sails actually spelled “Allah.”
I have to admit, this sculpture was not one of my favorites, so I’m not too torn up about it being gone now.  I found it odd looking and when it needed to be repainted, it looked pretty tacky.
