Magic Lamp Sculpture

Yet another whimsical sculpture in Jeddah, this magic lamp always catches my eye when I pass by its location in the middle of a large traffic island.

The oil lamps looks more like a Western idea of an oil lamp than a real oil lamp. I haven't found any good pictures of bronze oil lamps or near eastern origin, but with all pottery lamps the spout of the lamp is much shorter.

I understand it is all so much whimsy but it would be nice to create that whimsy from indigenous ideas (like the camel table base from your last post).

If only the genie would come out of it and grant your wishes.
