The Prodigy Concert Poster by Emek. The poster was inspired by the Merlion which is one of Singapore’s national symbols. The Merlion is an imaginary creature with the head of a lion and the body of a fish. Its name combines “mer” meaning the sea and “lion”. The fish body comes from Singapore’s ancient name back when it was a fishing village — Temasek — meaning “sea town” in Javanese. The lion head represents Singapore’s original name — Singapura — meaning “lion city” or “kota singa” in Sanskrit and Malay. found via omgposters.com
