Our World: Magic Carpet Sculpture

There is a large traffic island in Jeddah which houses many whimsical public art sculptures. This one is a large flying magic carpet that sports a funny looking automobile riding it. The street it's on runs parallel to the nearby Corniche, where many more of Jeddah's sculptures are located.

Nice sculpture. Is the car a real car?

Hi Jerry - Many of the sculptures around the city utilize real objects like vehicles, airplanes, and boats. The car used in this sculpture is rather funky looking and I'm not really sure if it is a real car or not. It could be a European model or something like that that I'm not familiar with.
