Lion Sculptures and Singapore

Singapore’s mascot (tourism symbol) is the Merlion – a fish with a Lion head. The lion head represents Singapore’s original name — Singapura — meaning “lion city” or “kota singa” in Sanskrit and Malay.

I found these lovely set of Lion Sculptures abandoned outside a bungalow.
