Wealth and Contentment just outside the University Cultural Centre

Wealth, Ng Eng Teng, 1974, Ciment Fondue.

This is to supplement the earlier post titled NUS Museum: The works of Ng Eng Teng.

I personally think that although Wealth and Contentment were not commissioned for the University Cultural Centre, these two sculptures look quite blissful (and not frightening) against the lush green grounds just outside the University Cultural Centre.

My only complaint is that the sculptures do not seem to be prominent to most visitors who happen to be passing by the University Cultural Centre on a bus or vehicle. Some visitors of the centre may just miss Wealth and Contentment unless they take the time to locate the two large sculptures that are placed just by the side of the main entrance of the centre.

I could only ask that visitors to the NUS Museum take a slight detour to check out these two sculptures. If one is going to the NUS Museum to view Ng Eng Teng's works, I dare say that the experience won't be complete without viewing these two sculptures.
