Video: Why a massive Buddha statue appeared on Sheikh Zayed Road
Motorists are discovering art on the highway in Abu Dhabi.
For instance, a massive 10m high 3D Buddha sculpture is welcoming motorists driving on the E11 Sheikh Zayed Road near Al Rahba since yesterday.
Louvre Abu Dhabi has confirmed that it is part of the Highway Gallery’s second edition that will be launched on April 7.
A total of ten artworks from Louvre Abu Dhabi’s collection will appear alongside the E11 Sheikh Zayed Road from Dubai to Abu Dhabi in the coming days, according to the museum.
