Tourists at Singapore River
Most locals are aware that the public artworks on the south side of the Singapore river are set against a backdrop of the towering skyscrapers in the financial district. The life-size bronze sculptures represent the city's past and present inhabitants.
The bronzes are popular with tourists; some of the sculptures have parts burnished to gold by the hands of thousands of people stroking the smooth metal while posing for photographs with them.
The sculpture of these coolies (workers) loading goods onto a bullock cart, a common sight during the earlier days of Singapore. Caught two little female tourists resting their tired feet on the sculpture!! An amusing snapshot! :-)
