The Merlion is a mythical creature with the head of a lion and the body of a fish. The animal's body symbolises Singapore's humble beginnings as a fishing village, while its head represents Singapore's original name: Singapura, or 'lion city' in Sanskrit. A statue of the Merlion can be found at the Merlion Park in Marina Bay.
