Mini Windows Box Series
The Straits Chinese or Peranakan style is a blend of Chinese, Malay, European and colonial elements which flourished from the late 19th century to World War II. Rich in detail and built with care, the style has humble beginnings. It first appeared in simple shop houses where tradesmen toiled, and was only later adopted in the elaborate terraces homes of wealthy merchant families. It was common for the original owners of these houses to inscribe, above the windows, either their name or the name of the village in China that they came from.
This collection of doors and windows is an attempt to preserve the beauty of Peranakan architecture in an artistic three-dimensional form. The windows themselves are limited in originals, hand painted by Arthur P Y Ting with abstract collages as the background.
