so is dubai actually building a gargantuan dr. manhattan statue? it’s called al hakawati, meaning storyteller and houses a children’s library in its base and some kind of golden disco room in its head.

the most mind asploding part (apart from this confirming that dubai has offically LOST ITS MIND) is the fact that the statue can potentially move its arms and head! WHY?!?

it would be cool if they manage to pull this off, though. even if it probably scares the living lights out of the children, this is step one towards a weirdo future where skyscrapers are fully mobile, transformers style.

evil masterminds of the world, this is your cue.
