Asian Symphony is a low relief mural of figurative forms surrounded by lush foliage and a variety of floral specimens. Made by Singapore sculptor Ng Eng Teng in 1971 for the Garden Hotel, it alludes to the harmonious intermingling of the three main ethnic groups within the peaceful, sunny and green paradise of Singapore. The commissioning of the piece and its theme may be viewed in the context of civic life and nation building in Singapore during the 1960s and 70s.
