Metal Art : George Town, World Heritage Site (Part 2)

In Metal art- part 1, I shared with you, pics of various metal sculptures scattered around the old part of the city. There are many more of them, mainly showing life as it was in the early days of settlement. Most of these metal caricatures, come with a sense of humor, instantly bringing smiles to the unsuspecting tourists, like yours truly.

Here are 8 more of the metal art, around George Town – declared as a UNESCO world heritage site, in 2008.

Penang’s George Town, in addition to the street art, is also known for its metal sculptures / art. They are a collection of caricatures, portraying the history, people and special characteristics of George Town streets. The Malaysian sculpture studio, SCULPTUREATWORK,are the creative team behind this novel art.

There are about 52 sculptures, spread across streets of George Town. In this post, and the following ones, I intend to share photographs of some of the metal art, we came across during our trip to George Town, Penang, Malaysia.
