A new awesome art object ‘Pillar of Fortitude’ by renowned artist Helidon Xhixha was placed in Gate District 6 at DIFC at the end of 2021.

The sculpture measures 7 meters in height and representing the 7 Emirates of the UAE, standing tall and united, soaring upwards into the sky, towards a prosperous, limitless future.

Pillar of Fortitude is dedicated to the glorious celebration to mark the milestone Golden Jubilee 50th National Day Anniversary.

A foundational pillar that aims to inspire youth to have their vision about the ambitions of the next 50 years, while also inspiring principles to all those who consider the UAE their homeland.

The unveiling of new public art displays at the DIFC comes at a time when the UAE is focused on boosting the country’s cultural and creative sectors to support the economy and reflect the inclusive participation of young people and global stakeholders.

The Dubai International Financial Center is promoting culture and community through its unique public art displays from around the world that pay tribute to the UAE.
