Cultural Medallion recipient Han Sai Por is renowned for sculpting and carving with the very challenging material of stone. In 20 Tonnes, Han displays her expertise with the material. This sculpture is inspired and constructed using the traditional techniques of breaking stone. You can feel the weight and mass of the sculpture just by walking by and through the six slabs of stone, which resemble the famous Stonehenge in its shape and form. Han’s practice deals with humanist ideals and values, taking a special interest in Nature.
