Here I am on the official Haw Par Villa Facebook page, introducing my favourite set of dioramas in Haw Par Villa - the 10 Courts of Hell!
Here’s what I shared:
“Hello everyone, I’m Eisen, a Senior Researcher from the Singapore History Consultants Pte Ltd.
My favourite set of dioramas in Haw Par Villa is the infamous 10 Courts of Hell.
To me, the 10 Courts is a wonderful, artistic representation of an abstract set of ideas, a combination of Hindu, Taoist, Buddhist, and Confucian concepts - more than a thousand years old.
It’s a fitting warning to all that there is no escape from the consequences of one’s actions.”
