PLANET - the floating white baby

Everyone has been taking photo of this floating white baby in Singapore.
I asked a friend where she took it from and she said the gardens.

Though there are many gardens in Singapore, there's now only 1 Garden that everyone knows, probably the world world knows about it too.

Planet

If you are at Gardens by the Bay, you can see this sculpture titled: PLANET.

Planet

A white painted bronze, stainless steel sculpture of a baby boy.
Sculptor is Marc Quinn.

If you can't see what's on the 2nd photo, here it is:

Beautifully balanced on a languid arm of a sleeping boy child, this six ton, 383cm by 353 cm by 926 cm bronze cast sculpture floats like a heavenly body above a verdant earth. Renowned sculptor Marc Quinn (b. 1964) created this work in a depiction of his infant son, Lucas. Quinn deploys an assortment of materials and techniques to explore nature under human influence in themes that include the changing human body and the dual meanings of human life, between spiritual and physical, surface and depth, cerebral and sexual. This piece is the second of three editions, and is gifted for permanent display in the Gardens by the Bay.

A friend from the other part of the world says she has seen this in Monte Carlo. Have you seen the 3rd one in your part of the world?

Supertrees....

Another view of the SuperTrees during the weekend....

SuperTrees

The Supertrees are not growing bigger or taller, but the real plants around are.

Resting. Peace.

He's tired.
He's resting on the bench.
He does look like a sculpture doesn't he?

He does look kind of peaceful doesn't he?

Resting.. No they are not sculptures

The other guy also was peaceful.

Mr Monk draped in his saffron robe has peace in his heart and he had a peaceful face too when he walked past me.

Botero By The Pool @ St Regis Singapore

Singapore has become quite artsy these few years, if you look around, it really has!

BotegoByTheStRegisPool

Do you know that the St Regis Singapore hotel is like a Art Museum by itself?
By the pool you can see this and a few other Fernando Botero sculptures.

If you dine at their restaurants, you can see art work of Singapore artists too. I was wondering and I asked! ;-)

I heard the rooms are the same too. You can sleep in the room that has quite an expensive art piece!
From what I heard, it's not for sale though. (Not that I can afford it.)

On a cold morning in Singapore...

Twas a misty morning.
Not haze though.

It was mist that was hovering over Bukit Timah.

Bukit Timah Hill

It has been like this these few weeks.
Weather's changing!

The Pretty Photo on the Singapore Visitors Centre Booth

I took this photo quite some time ago. I noticed it only after I saw something similar that the artist did for a Peranakan Restaurant in Joo Chiat. His work was in the toilet in the restaurant! The most beautiful toilet ever!

Singapore Visitors Centre

It's multiple photos of the same streets overlapping each other and the effect is quite good.

Singapore Visitors Centre

I notice the photos are mostly of shop houses in Singapore.

Singapore Visitors Centre

Go to his website if you want to know more about his works and his work.

It makes me want to do something similar for my living room.
Photos of something that I can overlap and make it into a long photo. What shall I take?

Boats and Yacht at Sentosa Cove

It's a view that we don't see everyday.
You might think it's not even in Singapore.

Reminds me of the marinas I see in Australia.

Boats and Yacht at Sentosa Cove

But if you are a resident of the exclusive Sentosa Cove, you can take a boat out and enjoy a beautiful sunset ride out to sea!

It's a very touristy sign, every country has something like this, but it's a fun thing.
Everyone loves taking photographs of it!

WhereDoYouWantToGo

Monte Carlo sounds like an interesting place to go.
