The drawing was based on the history of colonisation in Penang, with a particular reference to buildings and flora. Noteworthy structures such as the Clock Tower, Penang Hill Tram, and St. George Church are juxtaposed against a delicate landscape of Cassia Fistula, a flowering tree which is indigenous to the region. The result is a fantastical representation bringing together the historical architecture and natural environment of the state.
