Tiger Balm Gardens (Haw Par Villa) October 2008
Haw Par Villa is a huge array of colourful concrete statues that show Chinese mythology and values. It was built in the 1930's by Chinese businessman Aw Boon Haw, whose marketing genius was responsible for a fortune built on selling Tiger Balm. The garden is a wonderful combination of whimsy and violence and colour and artistry.
