The Waterloo Street landmarks include the Maghain Aboth Synagogue, Sri Krishna Temple and Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple. Religious buildings line this street, reflecting the multicultural community that Singapore is. Being a small city state, with its Chinese, Malay, Tamils & people with many varied ethnic backgrounds, Singapore makes a very conscious effort in maintaining the harmony of the island, while each race is encouraged to preserve and practice its unique culture and traditions.
This is the artist’s depiction of a fortune teller, peacefully napping in his street office, while all the various elements of the artwork manage to maintain a quiet balance.
