Han Sai Por (Singapore)
A plant’s life cycle begins with a seed. This contains an embryo that has the potential to grow. Once the seed is set in a place where it can merge with the elements of nature, germination takes place and the embryo, once dormant, comes to life.
Seeds are a recurring subject matter for sculptor Han Sai Por. Located at Esplanade’s Waterfront, Han’s four granite sculptures symbolise the germination of the arts on fertile ground.
Cultural Medallion recipient Han is best known for her stone sculptures inspired by shapes and organic forms from nature. She often uses granite and marble in her sculptural pieces as they are natural yet tough materials, which can withstand the test of time, the forces of our environment and are symbolic of the resilience of life.
