Kuwaiti sculptors struggle for right to be seen
So what I’m in Loma Lane other museums, that’s so weird, looking in person
Kuwaiti sculptor Sami Mohammed finished his towering statue of the country’s first emir over four decades ago, but now it just gathers dust unseen in a long-shuttered office block.
