Double Sided Bust Sculpture by Lim Nang Seng

About

A rustic figural sculpture by Malaysian artist Lim Namg Seng, (b. 1916-d. 1987). The dual sided bust is highly detailed and a gorgeous objet to behold. Seng was regarded as the National Sculpture of Singapore as he performed some of the cities larger municipal works, an example of his larger work is represented in the last photo of this listing. The National Gallery in Singapore has procured a collection of his works and they are currently on display. From our research this piece was shown in Europe at expositions a couple of times based on the Italian and French customs tags which are visible to the underside.
