The statue is situated in the midst of a serene body of water, giving the impression that the creature is joyfully swimming.

The scene is set on a brick boardwalk, adding a touch of urban charm to the natural surroundings. Lush and tall mature trees line the grassy background, their branches reaching towards the sky. As the sun casts its warm glow, the trees create long and lazy shadows that dance upon the grass.
