The first sculpture, Eroded Bronze LKY Full Body 1:2 depicts Mr Lee right before his declaration of Singapore as an independent nation, following the country’s separation from Malaysia. The second sculpture, Eroded Bronze LKY Bust 1:1 captures a vignette of the wisdom imparted by Mr Lee Kuan Yew in his lifetime, continuing to serve as a beacon for navigating the future as Singapore enters a critical moment of change and refreshes the Singapore Dream to build a Singapore that is vibrant and inclusive.

“We are excited to introduce to The Canvas two sculptures of Mr Lee Kuan Yew, a man who has played such a formative role in the development of Singapore into what it is today. As Singapore’s most dynamic private membership community, Mandala Club is a home for the celebration of art in every form, and we are thrilled to expand our collections in the Club with a tribute to a legend whose contributions to the country need no introduction.” said Ben Jones, Co-Founder and CEO of Mandala Club
