Sculpted gazelle skull adorns Dubai Creek

The sculpted skull of an Arabian gazelle has been put up along the Dubai Creek waterfront as part of a project entitled Make Art Possible.

It is the work of Doa Aly from Cairo and commemorates an occasion when a gazelle was spotted running down the centre of a road in Palm Jumeirah, Dubai.

The incident in May 2014 inspired Aly to look at “a sublime connection of the prehistoric with the futuristic – like a mirage eruption of nature in an urban environment” according to the statue’s plaque.
