One of the most famous sculptures, “Newton” by Salvador Dali decorates the area near United Overseas Bank. Actually, it belongs to the same bank. The sculpture installed in 1985, depicts a notorious apple, which contributed to the discovery of the law of universal gravitation. However, it is not falling down from a tree, but a ball falling from the right hand of the scientist. Through the open chest we see the heart of Newton, which symbolizes his spiritual openness and generosity, and the open skull symbolizes his open-mindedness and wide horizons. These are qualities, according to Dali, without which it is impossible to achieve success and recognition.

One of the most notable monuments – “The Bird” by F. Botero. The well-fed sparrow, the creation of the Colombian sculptor Fernando Botero, essentially represents the prosperity of the Singaporean economy. The tablet on the pedestal reads: “Birds are traditionally associated with peace and tranquility. The three-dimensional Botero bird, moreover, symbolizes the joy of life and the power of optimism. As long as these qualities are present in people, Singapore will grow and prosper.

And another curious monument – livitating baby. British sculptor Mark Quinn created such an installation of his child – seven months after the birth of his son. The size of the sculpture is 10 meters, and the weight is 7 tons. According to media, the baby is kept on special – barely noticeable – props, so from the side there is an impression that it hovers in the air against the background of city skyscrapers.
