Jeddah Sculpture: The Illuminated Globe

 The Illuminated Globe is one of the most well known and beloved sculptures of Jeddah.  It is located in the center of a large roundabout in North Jeddah by Roshan Mall.
Julio LaFuente is the Spanish architect who created this amazing stained glass and steel sculpture. It is quite beautiful when it is illuminated from within at night.

I've done small mosaics, so I can appreciate the work involved. It is a very nice piece.
