The Panda Family

Year: 2013

By Julien Marinetti

Material : Bronze

Location : Westgate Mall

Duration : Permanent

Collection : CapitaLand Limited

Dimensions : Dimensions variable

Specially commissioned for Westgate mall, The Panda Family features four pandas in an identical sitting posture with the father at the head of the group and the mother and children looking at him with respect. The panda subject hints at CapitaLand’s sponsorship of the 10-year stay of two giant pandas Kai Kai and Jia Jia in Singapore, and also at the proximity of Westgate to the Chinese Garden, whose pagoda and pavilions have long been prominent landmarks of Jurong. 


Look carefully at the seemingly abstract paintings on the bodies of the children pandas and you will find references to these landmark buildings. Even the colours have meanings: orange and red for the sun, pagoda and pavilions; blue for water and sky; and green for nature.
