Moon River

H120xW120cm

Moon River, wider than a mile, I’m crossing you in style somebody…

Moon River, a song composed in the early 1960s, brings back memories of old romantic movies. In the same way, this artwork creates the setting for a romantic stroll along the river. Double happiness fish spring out of the moonlit water and glowing Chinese lanterns sway in the night breeze. These symbolic Chinese elements link back to the cultural heritage of the Singapore Shophouse. Shophouse buildings can be found all over the island.

The photograph used in this artwork of a row of well-preserved Peranakan Shophouses was taken at Koon Seng Road, Joo Chiat, Singapore.
