Not Just a Little Red Dot: Lion Head


Retailing exclusively at Design Orchard, Singapore

Acrylic on canvas
60cm x 75cm

One of the most easily recognised National Symbol of Singapore, the lion is a historic symbol of Singapore’s status as the Lion City and embodies the national values of courage, excellence and strength. Introduced in 1986, this symbol is designed by a Singaporean who gifted it to the nation.

The beauty in diversity and collective strength is encapsulated in my take on the Lion Head symbol.

About the ‘Not Just a Little Red Dot’ collection

When someone mentions ‘Singapore’, what comes to mind?

Despite its small land footprint on the world map, Singapore has taken huge strides and big leaps since independence to transform into one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. In Singapore’s transformation journey, iconic national symbols and landmarks were created along the way to represent Singapore in the world, and unite all citizens as one.

Created in my signature contemporary and tactile style, each piece in the collection is inspired by an iconic national symbol or landmark from significant milestones in Singapore’s history and present day developments.

The year when the symbol was created or when the landmark was completed is ‘stamped’ on the artwork, serving as a timestamp marking its historical significance at various points in Singapore’s history.
