Unusual Seashell Minaret Sculpture

This is one of the more unusual and intriguing public art sculptures of the city of Jeddah.  It appears to be a minaret  decorated with open seashells.  The photo only shows the top half of the sculpture.  Below is the sculpture including the colorful mosaic base, which is also adorned with a seashell.

A very odd sculpture. It has a number of conflicting images that don't have a common theme at all.

The bottom looks like a book. Maybe the shells are some kind of symbolism we don't know about?
