"Procession" Sculpture, Armenian Street, George Town, Penang


Procession is a steel-rod sculpture on Armenian Street, George Town. If you are coming from the junction with Cannon and Pitt Streets, it is on the wall to your left, after the big "Old Man" mural by Ernest Zacharevic. The sculpture depicts the Grand Float Procession held in 1926 to celebrate the birthday of Tua Pek Kong. As it was the Year of the Tiger, effigies of the tiger was carried through the streets (accompanied by the second Chingay procession in George Town). Observing the procession is a British tourist who remembers the last tiger shot in 1930 (an impossibility as the Tua Pek Kong Grand Procession actually took place in 1926).

The caricature was drawn by local cartoonist Tang Mun Kian and depicted as a steel-rod sculpture by Sculpture at Work.
