It presents layers upon layers of figures in an upward spiral motion.  It signifies the population’s high energy and a continuouf of progress.

It pays tribute to the nation of past and present.  Upon appreciative of their strength and ingenuity.  Without it, Singapore will not be a dynamic metropolis today.

This vibrant color sculpture spreading out his color in this vibrant garden city, for sure is not coincidental.

    I love that it’s bright and fun. It reminds me of the paper figures we used to cut out of paper

    Hello there! I’m inviting you to play “Tag! You’re It!” No obligations to complete this, but again, it’s a nod in your direction (even if it isn’t an award per se) … perhaps it’ll send some new people to your blog. Again … no obligations at all. All the best to you!

    Great article! This sculpture really shows what a difference art makes and how it enhances our lives. Take this sculpture away, and all you are left with is office buildings and nothing colorful, provocative, and awe and thought inspiring.
