Miniature Food Showcase

These miniature displays of Indian dishes are done by artist Mrs Meenakshi Ram. She is an expert in working with polymer clay and hand-sculpts each miniature dish including the accompanying cutlery and utensils. Meenakshi is also meticulous in ensuring the attention to detail. For instance, she mixes many different shades of polymer clay to achieve the desired colour of each dish. 

Each component of the dish is made separately and then painstakingly assembled - this includes each grain of rice, each strand of noodle, and even the slices of lime wedges!

This display of Indian food items are Meenakshi’s latest venture, showcasing the vast variety of Indian Cuisine in intricate miniature pieces. Throughout all her artworks, Meenakshi creatively showcases her Indian roots and endeavours to embrace, celebrate and sustain the Indian Culture. 

 

Indian Heritage Centre

The Indian Heritage Centre (IHC), a heritage institution managed by the National Heritage Board (NHB), traces the history of the South Asian community in Singapore and Southeast Asia. Launched on 7 May 2015 (in conjunction with Singapore’s 50th anniversary celebrations) by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, the IHC is a focal point for the Indian community, and a platform to learn more about the diverse Indian heritage in Singapore.

Located in the heart of Little India, IHC also serves as a springboard for visitors to explore the historic precinct. The Centre is housed in a brand-new four-storey building, comprising permanent galleries featuring five themes, a special exhibition gallery, educational and activity spaces, as well as other facilities.
