The sculpture of the boy and dog is probably one of those in Chinatown to depict the early days of the settlers along the Singapore River. It reminded me of the ones at Telok Ayer Green.

This particular one shows a boy holding something in his hand, and looking towards the direction of the sea, whilst his dog slept quietly next to him. There were some uplighters to lit up the sculpture at night, but unfortunately one of them has become a tray to stub out cigarettes. Poor dog, maybe it inhaled too much smoke that it fainted.
