A Study in Contrasts ...

Hong Kong

This statue of Aw Boon Haw at the entrance to Tiger Balm Gardens stands overlooking some abject poverty. Aw Boon Haw, at the cost of more than HK $16,000,000 built the Gardens in the 1930's. They're gone now, as I'm sure the slums are as well.

other sizes: small medium large original auto

this place is spooky - it's one of the bits that i dont regret the bulldozer shredding into. did you know that there was a tomb here with thousands of human bones on semi-display? the tiger balm lotion, however, is another story!
