Enquire


Pedra Branca is an outlying island and also the easternmost point of Singapore, with a name that translates to 'white rock'. A contentious dispute between Singapore and Malaysia occurred about the ownership of the island, starting in 1979 when Malaysia published a map claiming the island as its own. Singapore countered this claim by citing that the lighthouse was continually managed by Singaporean personnel. In this painting, Ong illustrates the island's lighthouse, rendered in black and white, and the communication tower that is also housed on the island.
