The large wall-hanging pictured above was designed by a Kuwaiti
artist and hand-woven in Tunisia. This tapestry depicts Arab culture with the waves
representing the sea which borders the region. The central panel incorporates Arabic
poetry. It measures 8 meters high by 10 meters wide and is comprised of 3
pieces. The hanging also serves a dual purpose as a decorative accent and an
acoustic aid for the auditorium. Click here for a closer view of the poetry panel.
