Singapore's multi-cultural and multi-religious roots are the central focus of this work featuring Indian gods and the Chinese chi-lin, a mythical creature with a lion's head and horse's body. Ms Tan creates an exotic, atmospheric work with a richness that is conveyed through warm colours and dynamic layering. Opaque colours alternate with translucent ones, with visual accents offered by the intricate patterns of ethnic lace.
