Looking down at Miniature Mountain surrounded by pool of water within rectangular low brick wall. Small hill has winding paths, pools, and miniature figurines. Located near the West Gate on Gin Ling Way in New Chinatown, the Wishing Well and Miniature Mountain were created by artist Lim Hong Kay who modeled them after the Sacred Seven Star Caverns in Canton, China. In the pool is a miniature hill covered with small statues of the Chinese Eight Immortal. At the summit a blue figure of the goddess Quan Yin stands beneath the arch of a shrine, guarded by blue lions. Behind the well stands the stump of a willow tree, which was planted by the late Chinese American actress, Anna May Wong, whose name means frosted yellow willow.
