Oman: Oman's Concrete Army

Dolosse - Seeb port developmentEveryone’s heard of China’s Terracotta Army. This morning while riding through Seeb, I discovered Oman’s equivalent ‘Concrete Army’. Thousands of dolosse were lined up in a field next to the road waiting to be used in the new Seeb port development. Most of the blocks were the traditional jack shape, but the biggest dolosse were clearly modelled on the Star Wars TIE Fighter.
