8 Oryxes by Dutch artist Tom Claassen
Dutch artist Tom Claassen has produced a series of sculptures of the Oryx, an antelope native to the Arabian Peninsula, which appear as a herd in the arrivals hall of the airport. Tom Claassen's work is emphatically versatile, in terms of subject, technique, and choice of material, but always recognisable. All of his sculptures embody a paradoxical tension between the light tone in which he approaches his subject matter and the rounded, way they are shaped. It is located in the Arrivals Meet and Greet Hall, towards the taxi pavilion in the East.
