Artist's Description

Merlion is an imaginary creature with the head of a lion and the body of a fish and is considered to be the most important trademark and symbol of Singapore. Merlion represents the humble beginnings of Singapore as a fishing village.

Merlion is 8.6 metres high with the head of a lion which is said to represent the lion spotted by Prince Sang Nila Utama when he re-discovered Singapura in 11 AD, as recorded in the “Malay Annals”, and the tail of a fish to symbolise the ancient city of Temasek (meaning “sea” in Javanese) by which Singapore was known before the Prince named it “Singapura” (meaning “lion city” in Sanskrit).
