10 wonderful National Heritage Board artworks found on Google Art Project

veryveryhappyvictims
Singapore's National Heritage Board has contributed over 150 selected pieces of art to the Google Art Project, the world's first online art collection with 32,000 art works from all over the world. The website works best with Google Chrome. It's fine with Safari but it is a little buggy with Firefox. Internet Explorer users need to download Chrome Frame.

Over 150 history and art museums worldwide have contributed to the project. I've selected 10 of my favourite artworks from National Heritage Board's collection here. Above: Very, Very Happy Victims by Agung Kurniawan, 1996
