Ruins and Trees: Devil's Peak Battery 廢堡與樹:魔鬼山炮台

Ruins and Trees

The Devil's Peak Battery was built in 1902 by the Hong Kong British Government to guard the eastern entrance to Victoria Harbour.   Today, the battery has fallen into disrepair and parts of the structure were modified.  In the sketch, trees are growing within the structure with branches reaching up to the top of the fortified walls, creating a rather eerie mood.
