- About the Illustrator
From the bronze Corpus Christi that overlooks the parish in the Church of Saint Mary of Angels, to the Buddha Maitreya that resides in the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, the iconic façade of the Al-Ansar Mosque and the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple’s Lord Krishna, artist Marcos Buinhas’ twenty illustrations celebrate Singapore’s multi-cultural identity as a melting pot of religious diversity with great reverence and painstaking intricacy.
Printed on high quality paper, the pages in this book can be individually removed and framed.
