The City Hall MRT station platform serves as a miniature modern art of museum. What makes the collection even better than the usual museum is that 1. they are totally cryptic – nobody understands what they are about 2. we can touch them freely and 3. they blend in well with the crowds.
This particular one has served as my virtual station staff for a long time. Despite doing nothing to help us (not even telling the subway direction – the statue design is pretty multi-direction), we always salute him.


Then finally I found out his ID.


A small plate separated from the statue basement shows everything. I have been using this MRT for more than 2 years and never realized the nameplate. Guess it’s not considered part of the artist’s job.

I didn’t spend time to read any of the information. Once nameless, always nameless.
