Chinatown Dog Lanterns

Check out artist Fan Dongwang's sculptures

Produced by the City of Sydney

Chinatown will be watched by 2 guardian dogs towering 3.8 metres above the street.

The pattern and colour of the red and blue dogs reflect the opposite qualities of yin and yang, as well as the happy, celebratory atmosphere of the Sydney Chinese New Year Festival.
