The location of this fountain is excellent but composition of the elements on the fountain makes it look kind of a hotchpotch. The dragon seems to be lost. Nonetheless it’s an interesting piece of design.

I'm not quite sure what this states is about, there appears to be a dragon, a bull and some mini dragon / rhino crossbreads but it's a nice statue just outside city hall and a good meeting place.
