Picture of the Day: Art in Central

This sculpture breaks up the straight lines in Central!
Art Basel may have come and gone, but in Central there are a few sculptures worth looking out for.

One of the prized ones is the Henry Moore bronze called Oval with Points (1968-70) in front of Exchange Square. It is shaped like the number 8, but the points in the middle fail to touch, which critics say creates tension and drama.

The piece was probably bought in Hong Kong because the number 8 is a favourite for feng shui reasons. No wonder it's surrounded by water and mini fountains, perhaps in the hopes of generating more wealth for the occupants in the building...
