Khobar Municipality has nearly completed the construction of the park.

Included here are as-built (construction) photos, as well as additional design sketches and renderings that we produced during design development.

Ive got a lovely bunch of coconuts
There they are, all standing in a row
Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head

MYTHOLOGIES I

...and before the throne there was as it were a sea of glass, like crystal.

And around the throne, on each side of the throne, are four living creatures, full of eyes in front and behind: the first living creature like a lion, the second living creature like an ox, the third living creature with the face of a man, and the fourth living creature like an eagle in flight.
- Revelation 4:6-7
