Rising - Dubai, UAE
Heath Satow presented a specially commissioned sculpture commemorating DUBAL's twenty-five years of operation to His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, unveiled in Dubai, UAE on January 9th, 2005. DUBAL (Dubai Aluminium) is one of the world's largest aluminum smelters, and a significant portion of Dubai's economy.
Weighing 1500 pounds and standing nine feet tall (without the base), the highly polished sphere represents the world cradled in a massive aluminum hand, and symbolically emphasizes the amazing growth and expansion of both DUBAL and Dubai. Positioned at the center of the sphere is a blue aluminum piece, in the shape of the UAE, with an ultra-bright blue LED locating Dubai.
