Working from a dusty workshop a stone's throw from the Clan Jetties, Yeoh Gim Huat carves a range of Chinese, Muslim and Christian tombstones seven days a week. With technology and heavy machinery, tasks that previously required a team of seven or eight workers can now be carried out by a single skilled artisan. Modern drills cannot replace an artisan touch and all the finishing and detail work for the tombstones is still done by hand.
