magnificent bull 01The “Magnificent Bull” bronze sculpture is located outside at the visitor center, Marina Gardens By the Bay.

Sculptor Walter Matia was born in Maryland, United states. Graduate in Massachusetts with degrees in Biology and Art Design.

magnificent bull 02This is a true belief to be why he has a full collect of animal’s sculptures.

magnificent bull 03As Walter says,” I am a hunter, a fisherman, a bird watcher, a book collector, a lover of natural history curiosities, an undisciplined dog trainer, and some say, a good game cook. I enjoy these passions-which have their own rewards; but they also provide the narratives of my art. I am not searching for more facts, they can be had in abundance from secondary sources; I am trying to understand the whole sense of a place.”
