Marina Bay had many point's of interest!

We saw more! Along the waterfront Esplanade was a row of cute bright Yellow Lion's, and in-between each, a seat. Problem was, Singapore is nearly always hot, and the day we were there was no exception! All the seat's were in the full Sun, and they would have been extremely hot to sit on!

A little further, and there was a sculpture, which to me looked like a Tree trunk that had been cut.
It was named "A World United" by Huang Lifan, and was a 4m high and 1.5m wide red stainless steel sculpture, depicting sportsmen engaging in the 26 sports of the Youth organized Game's.
I was way off!

It illustrates the unifying spirit of peace and sport, and symbolises mutual respect of cultures shared through sport.

The other one was a Tree named "Breathe" by Edwin Cheong.
What does it do?....... Captures wind by day and translates this energy into tiny lights at night, thus reminding us of the self-sustaining nature of our environment. The tallest Tree is 10 metres in height, with the branches of each tree made up of olive leaf-shaped cups that represent the nations of the world.

"Breathe" symbolises the peace and environmental consciousness shared by these nations and their united spirit for a truly sustainable global environment.

The photo explains what the World United is representing
