Palm-Inspired Clock Tower

This elegant steel clock tower blends beautifully with the trees behind.  Commissioned by Lady Yuen Peng McNeice in 1998, it stood at the Visitor Centre in the Botanic Gardens, but in 2014 it was moved to this charming spot outside the National Orchid Garden.

This artistic clock is made of steel but takes on a graceful form, inspired by the Sealing Wax Palm, the logo of the Singapore Botanic Gardens.
