I'm assuming it will be split into its four parts for transport.

Early renders look more smooth and shiny, let's hope it will look great up there

Does anyone know what is the purpose of the openings from below? Their number has increased from 6 to about 12 and they cannot be used for the creation of light beams.

There was a debate about that not too long ago. In the Saudi forum, it's officially 610 while here it's still 601. I guess we'll only know after its completion..

Awesome pics, Roukaya. Lucky guys! Now I literally can't wait to see it up there.

By the looks of it, I think it'll only be 3 parts, base and both corners, or 4 parts, 2 pieces of base and two corners.

As seen in this pic, it IS shiny, ruined by the brown lines.

If 10 is the right number I believe it will be divided like that (notice the tapes signs):

I may be wrong, but the number of 10 comes from the newspaper article, contrary to somebodys pure speculation. And the tapes stripes seems to suggest the same after closer investigation (I first thought it will be 4 parts too). I'm not sure if I'm 100% right about corners and maybe bottom parts, but I'm quite confident there will be more than 4 parts. Just imagine moving one of those 4 parts with a truck. I think it would have problem fitting in the street line
