Our World: Sunflower Field Fountain at Night

I've never been fortunate enough to see this lovely fountain that sprays water when it is working.  The Sunflower Field fountain is one of the few sculptures of Jeddah that was created by a female artist, Eila Hiltunen from Finland.  The piece of art consists of seven graceful sunflowers made of a special type of stainless steel that is extra strong to resist the effects of corrosion and the harsh elements of the weather and sea air of Jeddah. 

Be sure to visit OUR WORLD TUESDAY, where family-friendly bloggers share a unique glimpse into what life is like all around our ever-amazing planet.

Nice sculpture, I wish it was better lit though.

Thank you so much for coming by my blog and commenting on my Desert Views post. I found it fascinating that you lived here for 40 years and now live in Saudi Arabia with your husband and son. This is an interesting fountain, and I would love to see more of "your world" in the coming months. All my best!
