Al Hakawati (The Storyteller) Is An Emblem Of The Arabic World

Located in Zaabeel Park, Dubai, the Al Hakawati (the storyteller in Arabic) by Visiondivision is an iconic tall emblem structure designed for a competition named “Thyssenkrupp Elevator Award” that will recite historic anecdotes of the Arabic city and its people with animated body language.

Featuring a number of spaces for performance and reading within, the statue also houses a children’s library at the base that includes a vast collection of books, telling the folklore of the Arabic world to the kids. Moreover, the Zaabeel Park will include small speakers in every corner of the park, which will let the visitors listen and enjoy the stories (or folktales) recited by the statue.
