The Warrior (Limited Edition of 38)
by Justin Lee
This statuette of a terracotta warrior by Justin Lee is a representation of our strength, resilience and pride. The statuette also highlights issues of national identity, commercialisation and consumerism. His art blends Western pop art with traditional Eastern imagery to give a new iconographic interpretation of a work that is decidedly Singaporean. Cast in resin and finished in orange as inspired by the colours of Asian Civilisation Museum, it is one of only 38 limited edition statuettes produced specially for the museum. The statuette is the latest addition to Justin's on-going body of work titled Modern General.
