The gibbons on the S$50 note and more


Many people in Singapore could have own a copy of one of Chen Wen Hsi's artwork without realising it.

Unconvinced? Please take out your wallet, and look for a S$50 note (from the Portrait Series). Turn to the back of the note, and look for a pair of gibbons on it.

The image of those two gibbons is actually a part of an artwork by the late artist, Chen Wen Hsi.
