Artist's Description

Hello dear TL-friends,
Here again there is the Merlion, Singapore’s symbol, but now from another pov.

Unfortunately, in Februari 2009 this image was in the scaffolding because it was repaired.
What happened?
Read this:

“SINGAPORE, Feb. 28 (Xinhua) — Lightning flashes on Saturday afternoon damaged Singapore’s Merlion statue, the country’s long-standing original icon.

According to local radio reports, the incident, which occurred between 04:00 and 05:00 p.m. local time on Saturday afternoon, caused quite a commotion.

Something like an explosion sound very loud, then after that some of the pieces fell off the Merlion, but no one was hurt in the incident, one witness was quoted as saying.

The explosion, caused by the lightning, created a hole, the size of a soccer ball, on the Merlion, one of five Merlions in the country.

The 8.6-meter-tall statue was originally located at the mouth of the Singapore River, but was moved to the Merlion Park in downtown in 2002".

The damage is quickly repaired.

Greetings from Zeeland, Netherlands,
Adri
