SeniKome Peng Heng @ Resort World Genting
When talk about Resort World Genting, there are many things for you to explore – from food to hotel, attractions and etc…Today I’ll introduce you one of the latest and interesting attraction in Resort World Genting – SeniKome Peng Heng. First of all, let me explain to you the meaning of “SeniKome Peng Heng” – “Seni” means “Art” and “Kome” means “Kami” in the Pahang local dialect. While “Peng Heng” was used to refer to the East Coast regions of the Malaysia Peninsula in the Ming Dynasty in 1520’s.
Located on Level 3 of First World Plaza, SeniKome Peng Heng is an exhibition which introduces the history of art and culture of East Coast states in Peninsular Malaysia which consist of Pahang, Terrenganu and Kelantan.
These metal statues feature Silat stances (Malay Martial Art) were masterpiece of Raja Shahriman Bin Raja Aziddin, who graduated with a degree in Fine Arts specializing in Art Sculpture.
