Lyon-Singapore Association presents bronze bust of Lee Kuan Yew
The cult of personality has taken form with a bust that resembles Homer Simpson. At least Lee had the courtesy not to show up, but expect much more of this after he dies. CNA:
The Singapore University of Technology and Design is now home to a bronze bust of former Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew.
It is a gift from the Lyon-Singapore Association and the Municipality of Lyon.
The sculpture, weighing about 80 kilogrammes, was unveiled at the Lee Kuan Yew Centre for Innovative Cities in the Singapore University of Technology and Design on Tuesday.
It is a tribute to Mr Lee for his outstanding accomplishments to Singapore and the world.
The bronze bust, which is given as a token of friendship between France and Singapore, is intended to be an early birthday present for Mr Lee, whose birthday falls on September 16.
Its creator, French artist Nacéra Kainou, said she made it by referring to photographs as she has never met Mr Lee in person. She is the first person to make a sculpture of Mr Lee.
