Placed at the entrance plaza of ION Orchard, this sculpture tells us about the history of Orchard Road, where plantations of various kinds of crops such as nutmeg once thrived. Nutmeg and Mace are two spices from the same fruit of the nutmeg tree. Nutmeg is the seed while mace is the lacy reddish covering of the seed. In this sculpture, a much larger-than-life nutmeg fruit is featured and cut-open to reveal the seed and its mace. The mace is intricately carved and both the fruit and seed are beautifully patinated.
