KAU Street of Mosaics

I have featured several mosaics in the past few weeks that hang on the wall surrounding KAU (King Abdulaziz University), girls' school, so I wanted to show you a shot of the actual wall where they hang.  The wall is several city blocks long on four sides, encompassing the entire facility's campus.  With the barbed wire above the solid wall and no landscaping, it almost appears to be a uninviting prison instead of an institute of higher learning.  By the way, this shot was taken about midway, so behind me there was an equally long stretch of similar wall with hanging mosaics. In the distance you can also see the enormous roundabout sculpture of Engineer's Tools, which I featured a few days ago.

It does look like a prison wall. Still it is nice to see how the mosaics are displayed.
