Public Art : Swallows sculpture
Sculptor: © Chu Honsun
Description: "These swallows are frozen in time
searching for food to feed the young ones. The bright white marble appears as a pleasant surprise to pedestrians
hurrying to work in this busy district. The swallows might be an analogy of the white collar middle class hurrying
home after work. Hard working middle class office workers are trying to earn a living to raise their children and
improve their livelihood. Everyday after work, people would hurry home to see and feed their kids just like the
swallow would feed their offspring. The work shows a stack of swallows in flight from different angles. The agility
feeling is reinforced by the water of the pool and the reverberating reflection on it."
