photoblog image Murals of Tiong Bahru 1

Murals of Tiong Bahru 1

I made a trip to Tiong Bahru in the Red Hill area. I will present some murals on building sides, done by a talented local artist. This is a district in Singapore that has had quite some history. In the past there were several cemeteries here (the name itself refers to a cemetery). This panel depicts song birds in their cages while a group of men enjoy tea or coffee and local style toasted bread. Even today, an old practise of organizing song bird competitions has survived, I was informed.

This is rather good Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I liked the entire concept of it, Chad. Although I suspect it promotes bird entrapment and rampant purchases/exchanges too.

neat picture of a picture!! and song bird competitions?? i've never heard of that.. it sounds sweet smile
Ayush Basu: I have no clue how they get the birds to perform and how the judges score them Elaine, but it does sound sweet.
That would be wonderful to witness - a song bird competition.
Ayush Basu: I have not seen/heard it, Mary, but I completely agree with you.
That is really nice.
Ayush Basu: I thought so too, Michael.

Bonne journée
Ayush Basu: Very well put, Claudine. Thank you.
Song bird competitions! Now THAT would be something, Ayush. I wonder who directs them. smile
Ayush Basu: Yes, I have no clue how it works out and how do the judges select the winner. Unfortunately I have been unable to dig up any schedules or something of that sort. Ginnie. It sure would be something!
Capturing a bit of local culture - nice one!
Ayush Basu: Oh yes, there is an increasing trend of having local themes based public art, Tom.
