A Singapore Wonder

Seen on the outer walls of the current Supreme Court of Singapore building.

Art or anatomy?

Tasteful or downright vulgar?

No wonder the honourable Former Speaker of Parliament Tan Soo Khoon had no qualms referring to this Supreme Court building as one of the "Seven Wonders of Singapore".

One wonders indeed.

Thank you for permitting me to use this photograph, Puja V.

Please consider the environment - do you really need to print this?

It appears to me that it's a picture of a man, seated on the ground, elbows on knees, head resting on hands... thinking? contemplating? A bit like Rodin's The Thinker Statue?

However, unlike Rodin's work, this man gives me an impression that he may be in distress? Helplessly sitting on the floor mooting? Suppressed?

DPYadav, I don't see anything vulgar though... may need to stretch my imagination to do that.
