75 TWO GOLDEN CLOISONNÉ CAMELS face each other in a shimmering pool, visible through floor-to-ceiling glass from Wynn Macau's main entrance. Nearly five feet high, they appear to stand right on the water. The principles of feng shui stipulate that they be placed in a pair. Because they have been pho- tographed so frequently, the camels have become virtually synonymous with Wynn Macau, but to those who know their story they are far more than dec- orative. In fact, Chuen Chung Lam, from whose Hong Kong warehouse they traveled, suggested that since camels are known as "ships of the desert," they might represent the people of the desert city of Las Vegas, relocated to this oasis on the South China Sea to welcome visitors from around the world. 我們今期原本計劃採訪福州漆器公司的林存忠先生,請他 講述其受永利澳門和永利皇宮路氹所託,為酒店搜羅藝術 品的故事。但就在我們著手準備採訪的期間,傳來了林先 生駕鶴仙遊的噩耗。感謝林先生兒子Dennis的鼎力幫助, 我們得以寫下這篇文章,向這位優秀的策展人、藝術家致 敬。林先生深受永利渡假村上下員工敬愛,他搜集的藝術作 品在永利展出,令來自世界各地的客人都為之著迷。 In this issue, we had planned to interview Chuen Chung Lam of Foochow Lacquer about the art pieces he sourced and commissioned for Wynn Macau and Wynn Palace Cotai.
