2) About The Fountain
MALAYSIAS tallest Liuli Crystal Fountain was unveiled at the Bukit Bintang main entrance of Pavilion Kuala Lumpur and is set to be the nations new iconic landmark.
Valued at RM8mil, the fountain was conceptualised by Pavilion Kuala Lumpur in collaboration with artistic glassware expert Liuligong-fang.
It features the Bloom of Hibiscus, Malaysias national flower, which is described as a symbol of opulence, passion and progression.
The three bowls represent Malaysias multiracial culture of living harmoniously and its ascending structure signifies the growing aspirations of the people.The water converges from all directions seen as an endless source of blessings and prosperity.
Malaysians and tourists also have the opportunity to emulate the symbolic gesture of tossing a coin into the Pavilion Crystal Fountain, just like the Trevi Fountain in Rome, where tourists would toss a coin into the fountain and whisper their hopes and dreams.

3) About The Material - Liuli Crystal to built this fountain
Adding with Lead and Barium ( barium disilicate ), this type of glass have a jade-like appearance. Glass containing lead and barium emerged as early as the Western Zhou Dynasty. The lead-barium glass requites a relatively low melting temperature. It looks sparkling and crystal clear, but thin and brittle, and cannot resist sharp drop or rise in temperature. It is therefore unfit for making utensils or apparatuses. Often lead-barium glass was processed to make ornaments, ritual objects or funerary objects.

Hello Ally and Happy New Year Coming,
It is hard to believe that it is Christmas time in Kuala Lumpur with short sleeve shirts. I wonder how poor ole Rudolph fends off the heat?
Your image really shows the beauty of the scene that has been erected, the trees are remarkable in their own rite.
Well Captured, and all the best for the upcoming year...

une photo très festive avec des couleurs qui rappellent bien noël, le rouge et le vert sont en vedettes et avec force.. Dommage pour le taxi coupé à gauche mais on ne peut pas tout cadrer à l'infini.
My best regards.

The point of view is showing the details and colors of the fountain. It is also sending my eyes toward the Christmas trees which is giving depth to the composition. The early evening light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

what a colourful presentation. Nice to see the fountain in such colourful atmosphere. Great light and depth. Love the composition but I think you should include the whole part of the red car. Anyway, it is a great shot. Tfs.

Looking at the scenery, it does not feel like in Malaysia, it could as well be in any of the U.S. City Shopping mall. Anyway, good shot, I like al the festive colors of red, even the taxi are well match to the overall composition. Beautiful colors and light.

Cette vue est pleine de couleurs et de décorations de fêtes de fin d'année. J'aime cette profusion.
Bonne et heureuse année 2011 !

I like the tight composition Allyn. You have a few people to add interest. Red is dominant, and I think the red car is a good lead-in into the photo. Also the tree branches on the left acts as a nice frame to that side. Depth of field is fine and also the exposure. A fine colourful shot of an interesting scene well executed. Warm rgds
Best wishes for 2011

Hi Ally. Bright and happy image. the fountain sounds worth visiting as a lot of thought and artistic endeavour went into its creation. I just hope that the fact that the different sizes of the three bowls do not mean that one ethnic group is more important than another. Of course the sizes had to be different for a fountain design but people could read much into it. Beautiful colours. Best wishes for 2011 Ally. Regards. Klaudio.

I like the red/green combination of this photo and this nice composition. The slow shutterspeed gives us a feeling of mowing water.
