Photos: New heart sculpture unveiled in Dubai
The sculpture has been carefully positioned to reflect the sky-high Burj Khalifa.
Master sculptor Richard Hudson has returned to Downtown Dubai and he's back with something bigger and better.
The artist's three-dimensional, mirrored-steel 'Love me' heart sculpture that first appeared in February last year to visitors to the Dubai Mall, has been recreated - but this time on much larger scale.
The new 'Love me' heart, the latest piece to be added to Emaar's growing community art portfolio, is so big that it had to be transported in pieces to its new home and assembled onsite.
At a height of five metres and equally wide, 'Love me' has a depth of 3.8 metres and weighs over 7,000 kg. Described by Hudson as "all-encompassing in its symbolism of love and peace - and an icon image that crosses all boundaries" - 'Love me' resonates with people from all walks of life.
The sculpture has been carefully positioned to reflect the sky-high Burj Khalifa on its mirrored steel surface making it the perfect companion to the two captivating LED shows lighting up the iconic tower throughout the holy month of Ramadan.
Hudson's works have been exhibited around the world including shows across Europe, the Americas and Asia. He has curated private collections for the likes of Sir Elton John, Claudia Schiffer, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
The Dubai Mall continually seeks to promote art and culture with outstanding exhibits, select collections and one-of-a-kind showcases.
