Sabah, often referred to as the Land Below The Wind, has a handful of bizarre sculptures at roundabouts. From giant lettuce at Kundasang, to giant Marlin at Kota Kinabalu and more, this time we have a king erected at a roundabout in Serian Durian Piazza.
And by king, we meant the fruit king − durian!
The four-metre durian sculpture has become the latest attraction in Serian division, The Borneo Post reported.
Located right in front of the upcoming Roxy Hotel, the concrete-made silver durian weighs 7.5 tonnes and it is the brainchild of Tecktonic & Sons Holdings Sdn Bhd managing director Lee Chin Teck.
Lee wanted a silver durian sculpture since 2017. He believed this fruit king sculpture is the largest of its kind in Malaysia.
“Originally, the sculpture was to be made using a particular aluminium material from China.
“But we found a Sarawak-born sculptor who knows how to create sculptures using concrete and so we decided to paint the durian silver to go with our original aluminium design theme,” he explained.
