Crouching Tiger and the Hidden Dragon Pt 2

Posted on Updated on

One blogger put up a request to me for more pictures of these wooden tree stump sculptures displayed at the Green Pavilion, Singapore Botanic Gardens.

In fact, some of the sculptures were also placed as an art deco at the lobby.  This is the one placed as a backdrop of the counter.  No visitors would dare to confront the counter staff with the three dragons behind them.  Perhaps, visitors may have mistaken them for the real ones and wonder why the dragons are let loose from their enclosures.

Do you fancy two gigantic lizards crawling on top of your head?

A miniature Godzilla having a good life here!

I still can’t figure out what animal is this?  Could it be an eagle?

Is that real? Is up to you to judge!

Are these pumpkins?  What are they doing here after the harvest, waiting for the next Halloween?

Just relax and take a sit, while you enjoy the works of art with our hands, provided by nature.

    Hi Sydney, I’m a little afraid that one of those is real!!! Maybe there really are dragons, and I thought they were mythical. HELP!!! There’s one on my shoulder now! HEEEEEEELPPPP!
