Fruit Sculpture

There are many unusual sculptures in Jeddah that are publicly displayed on the streets of the city.  In fact the number of sculptures here is about 350.  At one point, there were well over 500, however many have been destroyed by the harsh elements, like the salty sea air, the oven-like climate, and the severe winds and blowing dust.  The Arabic writing above says "Open Museum."  There are many other sculptures on this stretch of road of the city.  This particular whimsical sculpture consists of three super-sized pieces of fruit.
