Artist's Description

The symbol of Singapore: the Merlion.

The Merlion is an imaginary creature with the head of a lion and the body of a fish.

Its name combines “mer” meaning the sea and “lion”. The fish body comes from Singapore’s ancient name back when it was a fishing village — Temasek — meaning “sea town” in Javanese.
The lion head represents Singapore’s original name — Singapura — meaning “lion city” in Sanskrit and Malay.

It is a wonderful and photogenique place.

Kind regards,
Adri
