“Bird” sculpture is made of bronze, created by renowned sculptor, Fernando Botero.  This beautiful 3-dimension art piece signifies the joy of living and the power of optimism.  It has a “vital statistic” of 245 x 310 x 250 cm and is located outside UOB Plaza, next to Singapore River.

UOB (United Overseas Bank) believes so long as there is peace and optimism, the nation will continue to grow and prosper.

Personally, I like its shape in round form.  It epitomizes an eternal strength and inspiring hope to every passerby.

    Good golly, from the front, I really didn’t see bird at all. I thought it was some strange human/alien combo thing. Looks much more like a bird from the side.
