Brothers Aw and their sculptures


Tiger Sculpture @ the Haw Par Villa, Singapore 


One of those weekends. You are tempted, only tempted to work, But then ... let's go see something weird instead. Haw Par Villa is some kind of 1930s Disneyland and depicts scenes from Chinese mythology. The park goes back to the founders of the well known Tiger Balm brand, Burmese-Chinese brothers Aw Boon Haw and Aw Boon Par, in 1937. Today it is a quite quirky mix of an dilapidated amusement park, educational displays and utterly gruesome sculptures.
