Located at the waterfront is this modern sculpture depicting hornbills. An interesting and thought provoking piece of modern art. A good spot for a photograph.

This is just one of those things you need to see when in Kuching Sarawak... at night with all the lighting on etc it's amazing.

I passed this fountain a few times and I didn't realize it is a hornbill...Modern metal structure interesting to take a look if you are near the river

If you are walking along the riverside you will see this fountain. Try to catch it when it is working. I have never seen anything like this fountain.

Nice area to stop and sit in the shade of the flame trees , and watch the river boats , stainless steel hornbill sculptures are interesting modern art feature.

From what I observe, the fountain does not look inviting. Even looks ugly from one angle of view. Recently, the fountain is not functioning as there is no water spouting at all.
