Smaller Merlion, Singapore River (1)#

Smaller Merlion, Singapore River (1)
Licensed under PD

Smaller of the two Merlions (lion head and body of a fish) along the Singapore River. The word "Sing" comes from the Malay word for lion; thus the city is often called "Lion City."

In the background looms the back of the statue of the larger Merlion, the Marina Bay Sands Hotel built to resemble a ship on towers, and the lotus flower-shaped ArtScience Museum.
