Lawn Installation at Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall

The Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall and Hong Kong illustrator and designer Chan Siu Kau worked together to create the “Bunny-ful Blessings” lawn installation. Two of the artist’s Bit Bit Forest characters are depicted in the piece as daruma dolls bearing the characters for blessing, fortune, and luck and happiness, respectively.

This installation thus symbolises the memorial hall’s wish for Singapore to have a lucky and prosperous year. The installation will be on display on the memorial hall lawn up until 19 February 2023.
