Visual Sign in Mall

Because of the large population of expats living in Saudi Arabia who don't read Arabic, most of the signs here are in both English and Arabic. I like the signs that also offer visuals as well. The head of the male figure shown on the 2nd and last signs is barely visible in this photo because the image wears white against the white background. White is the traditional color for Saudi men's apparel. You can probably see his beard though if you look closely. (You can click on the image to enlarge)

I am full of questions! Why are there so many expats in SA?

It's a good system for signs. But HyperPanda makes me smile, imagining a very excited panda.

A most interesting sign indeed. Symbols say a lot about a country and those male/female figures are an insight into the local culture!
