Big Bang reflects the late Brother McNally’s interest in religion, humanity, and mythology. As the title suggests, this sculpture represents the beginning of time and the wealth of possibilities that follow. It was unveiled in 2000, along with the then Ministry of Information and the Arts (MITA) Building. Similar to Ng Eng Teng’s The Explorer which was also created in 2000, Big Bang alludes to the infinite opportunities and excitement that await Singapore at the turn of the millennium.
