Jeddah: Bicycle Sculpture

Jeddah's famous Bicycle sculpture has been moved, since the roundabout it used to be housed in has been dismantled and replaced with a bridge overpass.  It was quite a feat to relocate this piece of art to a new position at the same intersection.  It took lots of planning and special equipment. 

The Bicycle was fashioned from scrap metals by Spanish architect Julio LaFuente.  It stands 15 meters high.

I'm not surprised by your mention of its size. It looks big.
