Wordless/Wordful Wednesday - Momentum
This is Singapore's tallest public sculpture with 175 individual hand-painted steel figures located at Finlayson Green.
Momentum depicts an upward cycle of progress, symbolisling the energy and momentum of the business district, Singapore and its people. If you look closely, each cool sculpture has different postures but generally show a sense of movement.
Standing at 61 feet tall, I learned that an initial investment of over SD$2 million was spent to develop the sculptures. It 's a very expensive project but I think the sculptures portray well as an encouragement to the people to gain momentum and continuing to improve and progress.

I love this sculpture! Love feeling of movement and the colors. Very cool!ReplyDelete
At 61 feet tall, i guessing each of the figures is lifelike in proportion. It's quite spectacular but when you think of the expense per figure it seems perhaps the money could have been more appropriately spent on 175 needy human figures.ReplyDelete
That is so neat!ReplyDelete
One can hardly miss it when travelling to the financial district of Singapore. It's like a Christmas tree, yah?ReplyDelete
Wow, that is pretty amazing. I really like colorful public art like that. Add a little fire and it would fit right in at Burning Man.ReplyDelete
Interesting work of street art!ReplyDelete
Beautiful sculpture indeed.ReplyDelete
I reckon the sculpture is well worth the SD$2 million spent on it :-).ReplyDelete

S$2m to us is big money but to a country is sup sup the water. They portray men of many faces and from many industries. Great shot. tQ.ReplyDelete
I take that 75 people would be painting each of the sculpture? :DReplyDelete
Wow...a whopping SD$2 million is needed? Way too expensive don't you think? :/ReplyDelete
I love the pic and the sculpture but I was thinking, "Typical Singaporean! Even art has to have a business message!"ReplyDelete
I used to work in this business district and this is such an iconic feature there.ReplyDelete
It is really interesting, isn't it? It does seem to make your eyes move up and around the sculpture, in constant motion.ReplyDelete
