It certainly does make one stop and pay attention!

Sadly it's going to be removed Because they're going to build a bridge there

I'm sure they will just relocate it, as they have many other sculptures like the Bicycle and ones on the Corniche. They won't just trash it.

William - Sadly enough, my impression is that people around here mostly take the public art for granted and don't seem to appreciate it much. Jeddah is a city with many amazing public art sculptures, which were neglected for many years. Some were graffitied, many were in disrepair, some were vandalized. I am happy that efforts have been made to rectify the situation, but I still sense a lack of appreciation from the public.
