Singapore’s Merlion

Merlion

The famous Merlion ~ "sea" - "lion".  Still trying to understand this mascot - the head of a lion and the body of a fish.  The fish body represents Singapore's origin as a fishing village and the head represents Singapore's original name - Singapura - "lion city".  None-the-less, it is a famous tourist attraction in Singapore and it is one of the few souvenirs people associate to this city-state.
