My New Year’s present to you all is this recommendation for all Singapore-based readers and anyone planning a visit.
And this is the recommendation – go see the ASTOUNDING sculpture “Love the Last March” which is on free display at Gardens by the Bay until 24 May 2024, so there is still plenty of time to go and visit and marvel.
The artwork features 60 endangered animals cast in bronze, stretches a whopping 192m and is the world’s biggest sculpture.
It is the work of the amazingly talented husband and wife team Gillie and Marc.
We first went to see “Love the Last March” in the evening, and there were many other people viewing the artwork and – inevitably- posing for photos next to these stunning bronzes.
I decided I needed a second, more relaxed, up close and personal viewing, to be able to enjoy the sculptures at leisure.
So early the next morning, I routed my morning run via Gardens by the Bay and had the privilege of viewing the sculptures completely on my own – absolutely stunning.
I’ll leave you now to enjoy a selection of images of these endangered creatures.
Some of the animals featured have scarily small populations, so an installation like this is invaluable in drawing attention to their plight.
And, look, below – a real life critter amongst the statues!
Go and enjoy and prepare to be moved at the beauty of these amazing, endangered creatures.
