Mr Mundy received S$ 4000 for winning two out of the three prizes in the competition for murals for Paya Lebar Airport. They were executed in Venetian mosaic tile. Mundy persuaded Toh Chin Chye to finance his travel from Rome to Venice to supervise the selection of colours for the tiles. (Shamsuddin, p6)
