Inland river near Xiguan Water Gate embraces new scenes
Updated: 2011-09-20

On Sept 14, two new sculptures of water beast heads appeared where Baima River and Antai River meet.

The white marble heads are delicately and vividly sculpted, reflecting the styles of traditional Chinese garden decorations. They add a tone of dynamics and vitality to the clear and tranquil river.

It is said the new scene is to celebrate the open of the inland section between West Lake and Antai River to ships during the National Day holiday starting Oct. 1. Authorities are now trying to find a name for this unique pedestrian bridge. The wooden sidewalks on the bridge will also be completed soon.
