Inspired by the Bassac River, titled The Friendship River (Yip Yew Chong), whimsically extends the river and combines the Tonle Sap, Mekong and Singapore’s Marina Bay into one magical scene. Meanwhile, iconic landmarks of both contries dot the landscape.
Titled Prosperity (Yip Yew Chong) combines the KHR50,000 note with the SGD5 note. Elements of Cambodia and Singapore come alive in the mural (an elephant and a tembusu tree), inviting the viewer to “walk” into the note. The little boy symbolizes wishes and dreams of both countries for continued prosperity!
Both murals are purchased by Phillip Bank Plc.
