Close to the James Brooke Café, there is a modern Hornbill statue fountain. It is a better art than the original cat statue. Rhinoceros Hornbill - is one of the Borneo Endemic rain forest birds. A real symbol of Sarawak, not a Fairy tale.

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.
