Asian Civilisations Museum - Life After Death Art Installation

Before entering the exhibition hall to view the exhibits, we saw an art installation by Justin Lee, they looked so cute. The art installation blends western pop art with traditional eastern imagery.

The ancient terracotta warriors with the modern headsets, so cute.

The ancient lady with laptop. Hahaha so funny cannot imagine the Emperor surfing the internet during ancient times.

Another ancient lady with a branded bag.

Well that puts a new slant on things. The lady with the red handbag, could be an Asian Mrs. Thatcher! I don't know why it made me think of her...!
