 reflection: ambigrams-singapura

A juxtaposition of two dead languages: Latin & Sanskrit.

Ambigram (Latin) refers to 'both' (ambi) and 'of words' (gram).
Singapura (Sanskrit) is Singapore's 'original' name derived from the words 'lion' (singa) and 'city' (pura), from a legend depicting her discovery. *Some anthropologists, though, believe it comes from the Sanskrit words 'sing' ('rocky') and 'pura' ('city').
