where can you find these sculptures?

i learn - not copy, hor - from this blogger that you do not need significant landmarks to get your readers to guess the location (of a place). just show some bolts and nuts or some patterns on a building.

so, i am showing you three sculptures; three whole things and not just bits of them.

just one question:

at which tourist attraction are these sculptures displayed?


Victor said...

Easy. A place where there's lots of greenery and a food court below.

Lam Chun See said...

while chun see was clueless and nah got it mixed up, someone who lives on the other side of the globe, john (jollygreenp) and someone here,victor, seem to know the answer although they did not spell out the name.
the 3 sculptures are among some 30 over pieces distributed over the botanic gardens.
the food court that victor mentioned has changed management. it is no longer the 'taman serasi'; it is simply 'ig'.
john is right. there used to be lots of monkeys at the botanic gardens. reminds me of penang. when i visited the botanic gardens in penang in the 70s, i remembered seeing monkeys. don't know if there are still monkeys around?

I remembered the sculptures at the Botanical Gardens from our last visit there but didn't want to spoil it for anyone else guessing, hence my slightly enigmatic answer. Every time we visit Singapore my wife and I spend a lot of time in the Botanical Gardens. It is one of the best in the world. My remark about the monkeys was triggered by the memory of our first visit in 1957. One of mother's friends came with us and brought her four year old daughter. She was eating an ice cream cone (Magnolia of course) when a troupe of monkeys came racing out of the bush and one of them grabbed the ice cream and ran off eating it as he went. About every twenty minutes after that a little plaintive was heard to wail "the monkey pinched my nice cream!"
