One George Street

Mother & Child 36

Sculpture, Bronze, 70x145x54cm , 2001
Artist:  Han Meilin (b.1936), China
 
Location:  One George Street Level 1, Singapore

 

Nestled among the greenery on the pavement of One George Street is a gem of a sculpture by Chinese artist Han Meilin. It depicts a mother lying on her back with her child leaning against her body. The form is stylised; the mother’s lankiness and the child’s chubbiness contrast with each other. Care was taken in placing the sculpture atop a rock near a reflective pond, as if mother and child had just gone for a dip and are now sunbathing. It is indeed a refreshing image of love amid the bustle of the city.
