Comprising two kingfisher sculptures, one in a perching stance and the other in mid-flight, this artwork is given pride of place at the Kingfisher Lake, one of the more tranquil and relaxing spots in the Gardens. These large, impressive kingfisher sculptures serve as location markers, and are a sight to behold as their metallic feathers catch the shifting rays of light on the lake surface. Sightings of nine species of kingfishers have been recorded in Singapore. Some of these, such as the White-throated Kingfisher and the Collared Kingfisher, are a familiar and welcome sight at the Gardens.
