Perpetuity (Detail)

An 'environmental installation' where Frog King left 136 eggs (an auspicious number according to Frog King) on the balcony outside Pao Galleries in 1977. Some of the eggs were cracked and bugs gradually grew out of the work — hence illustrated the concept of 'perpetuity'. The installation was exhibited for a month from October to November, albeit the interference from the Department of Health, Hong Kong S.A.R..
