The Merlion on 12″ x 12″ (30cm x30cm) Squarish Stretched Canvas
Batik with orchids has been a distinctive feature of the Singapore identity, beauty and grace, as
evident in many of Singapore’s national costumes and cultural influences.
Specially designed using batik as its base, orchids and butterflies are both combined into a design
inspired by the traditional techniques of batik, which its designer lovingly calls the “Orchid Spring of
Singapore”. The entire canvas is finished with colour accents that reminds one of colonial heritage
along with straight, neat hemmed edges
MERLION @ MERLION PARK
Why not add a little bit of patriotism to your accessories with this mythical creature that features a lion’s head and a fish body. Symbolizing Singapore’s humble beginnings as a fishing village, and representing Singapore’s original name, Singapura (‘lion city’), the beautiful Merlion is not only widely used as a mascot and national personification of Singapore, but also must-see icon for tourists visiting our sunny islands.
