Saudi Arabia - Yanbu Fish Basket Sculpture

Yanbu's Fish Basket sculpture is located in the middle of a roundabout near the oldest part of the city near a mosque with a beautiful minaret.  It pays homage to Yanbu's origins as a fishing village on the Red Sea. Yanbu was also in an important commerce station because of its strategic location along the trade route from Yemen to Egypt.  I love all these funky, whimsical sculptures in Saudi Arabia - they are something that most people might not expect to see.
