Frog King and Perpetuity

Frog King and his 'environmental installation', where he left 136 eggs (an auspicious number according to Frog King) on the balcony outside Pao Galleries in 1977. Some of the eggs are 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 despite the interference from the Department of Health, Hong Kong S.A.R..
