Lunar New Year 2017

Happy new year from Sydney! Here are the six lunar lanterns representing the symbols of: the rabbit; pig; horse; ox; tiger; and monkey!

Each lunar lantern is five to eight meters tall and made up of hundreds of parts and LEDS. All the artists are Australians of mixed migrant background, of Asian heritage.

Here you see the final six lunar lanterns representing the symbols of: the snake; dog; rat (weirdly sexualised); dragon; goat; and the rooster, this year’s winner in the celestial signs!

You also see here the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge lit up in the lucky colour of red.
