Welcome to Villa Akbar one of the most hideous examples of overindulgence I've seen this side of Kuwait. Trust me there are many many other ones that I know of but this one is close to my house. This monument has been under construction for years, I guess the owner keeps on finding new crap to add to it which means it may never be finished.
You can see the villa from 30 highway on the right side when going to Salmiya. I'm having trouble figuring out what the style is, considering there are busts of Julius Caesar, Mozart, a water boy and da Vinci's The birth of Venus. That about covers the history of the world all located at this guy's house. Maybe he bought a bulk load of busts off eBay and that's what he got. Ha! Ha!

The birth of Venus and her friend the Roman wine server?
Quick! Someone call Oprah and have her buddy Nate take a flight to Kuwait and help this poor guy out with some decorating tips!!!!
