Water Well Sculpture

This Jeddah sculpture stands just several feet away from the Rose Water Sprinkler sculpture in Al Balad that I just featured a few days ago.  It is a replica of the ancient public drinking water dispensers that used to be found placed in strategic points around the city to quench the thirst of its citizens.  This sculpture has been changed in the few years since I first published a photo of it.  There used to be several more drinking cups standing at the base of the sculpture.
