Old sculpture new meaning under Covid-19
Hong Kong’s Sha Tin New Town has a stainless steel sculpture called Preserve Planet Earth.
In 1993, Hong Kong local sculptor Van Lau made this sculpture, which shows two human palms are supporting people’s habitat, the earth.
Frank the tour guide thinks that the original idea for this design was for supporting the new environmental protection campaign in the early 1990s.
Today the world is impacted by the Covid-19 Pandemic.
The methods of preserving people’s habitat and life should be making concerted efforts on pandemic prevention and listening to the government instructions.
Listening to government and making concerted efforts are the new palms for supporting our world under Covid-19
The whole world has been impacted by the stealth enemy, Covid-19, for almost one year.
In the early November 2020, a lot of European countries are having the new lockdown to stop the spread of the virus.
The pandemic is actually the common threat against the community of shared future for mankind.
Everyone in the world should make concerted efforts on pandemic prevention and listen to the government instructions to try our best to defeat the common enemy, Covid-19!
They are now the two new indispensable palms to support the world effectively.
They are what the Chinese people have done for about a year to stop the virus, treat the patients and recover the economy.
Everyone is able to do the same things too.
It is meaningless to have the violent protests against the lockdown measures.
Do you think those tight lockdown measures will be relaxed just because of the protests?
Protesters may just get infected after the gatherings!
Hope the world can recover in 2021 after preserving the world together
We should preserve our earth together.
Frank the tour guide hopes that all the world village citizens can make concerted efforts on pandemic prevention and listen to government instructions to handle the deadly virus.
Frank hopes that the world can recover in 2021!
