Uniquely Singapore Sculptures

I love that our country is filled with public sculptures that are so Singapore. There are bronze ones and stone ones and even more colourful ones in plastic. This post will be restricted to just those with a truly local flavour.

Like this one at the Peranakan Museum as a tribute to the Singapura cat that adopted the museum as it’s home.

One of the latest sculptures is the giant nutmeg at ION, our swankiest mall.

And of course we can’t forget our merlion. Symbol of Singapore – half aquatic creature, half lion as we are a lion city surrounded by water.

This is debatable, but to me the skinny snowman at VivoCity is so Singapore, because it seems like any snowman would melt in our blistering heat. I love it because the heat is one of my biggest grouses.

I think the body that takes charge of sculptures and art in Singapore has done a wonderful job. There are countless sculptures in Singapore and which is why I can’t quite cover them all, but I’ll be sure to add to this list as I get a chance to photograph more of them.
