If you’re heading to Dubai Mall for a shopping spree, or to catch up with friends at one of their many restaurants, here’s something you may want to add to your agenda.

A new three-dimensional sculpture in the shape of a heart now stands outside Dubai Mall, and it’s sure to grab the attention of anyone with an Instagram account.

The new sculpture is called ‘LOVE ME’, and is a work of art created by master sculptor Richard Hudson.

 

The ‘LOVE ME’ sculpture has been described by Hudson as “all-encompassing in its symbolism of love and peace – and an icon image that crosses all boundaries”

It’s not the first time visitors have been able to check out the striking sculpture. ‘LOVE ME’ first appeared in February 2018 as a Valentine’s-themed exhibition at Dubai Mall on a much smaller scale.

This time around, the ‘LOVE ME’ sculpture measures five metres by five metres, and has a depth of 3.8 metres. It also weighs 7,000 kilograms which is roughly the weight of an adult elephant.

The sculpture was so big that it had to be transported in several pieces and assembled on site.

Where to find it? 

You’ll find the sculpture located outside Dubai Mall near Jones the Grocer.

It has been positioned in such a way that it reflects the Burj Khalifa on its surface. This must look incredible at night when the Burj Khalifa LED show comes alive.

Cameras at the ready…
