WIRE SCULPTURES

Walk around George Town and spot these slightly cheeky, comic-style wire sculptures. In 2009, Penang State Government commissioned 52 uniquely designed wire sculptures to be placed around the city. They each tell of interesting historical tidbits that probably would not be found in conventional guidebooks. 

Why are Tok Tok noodles named so? Which street did the Japanese plant their spies before they occupied Malaya? What happened at Love Lane to have it earn its name? Find out by looking a little closer the next time you come across a wire sculpture and you may just find yourself chuckling away.
