This sculpture was done by Brother Joseph Mcnally, from his ""Tree of Life"" series. His characteristic Celtic spiral motifs are evident here.
Looking at the larger issue, a significant number of public art in Singapore do not have proper attribution, which includes the name of the artist. That's a pity because the work just becomes an anonymous piece of art, serving as mere decoration. I agree with Peter that we do not need to see the label to help us appreciate the work although it helps on occasions when the piece is too esoteric or abstract. The bigger issue is that some of the works-and I dare say the majority, like this one at GH-are placed out of context to their environment or locality. Because of this, the significance and intention of the work become lost.
