This significant art piece made by local sculptor Han Sai Por invites interactive, exploration and discovery.

There are voids and gaps between the blocks, it allows people to walk through in-between, indirectly encourage viewers to join and participate the spatial game.

The wave-like blocks are positioned for people to rest and seat while appreciating the graceful art piece.

Not easy to imagine how much hardship has the sculptor gone through while hewing the sculpture?

The rough texture of the stones surface signifies the coarseness of the sculptor palm.

    What a lot of work to make those. And then to put them in strange locations. But I like them!

      I think they put on that is because of the interaction and human flow. 🙂

      Yes, she is one of my favorite sculptor I known!
      These sculptures allow people walk in between but sadly I didn’t manage to capture the picture properly! 😦
