The Electric Sheep is a nod to a Philip K Dick sci fi novel ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep’.

It takes inspiration from the ancient art of applying paper cut designs to lanterns that dates back to the Song Dynasty (960-1279). Visitors can walk beneath the 2.5m tall sheep. Its rounded horns are a reference to Australia’s merino sheep.

About the Artist: Pamela Mei-Leng See was born in Brisbane to Chinese Malaysian parents who migrated to Australia in 1976. She completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts at Queensland College of Art and has exhibited in Australia and China.

This is part of the Lunar Lantern walk which follows the Circular Quay foreshore, from Cadman’s Cottage to Sydney Opera House.

Don’t forget to download our Sydney Culture Walk app to make exploring the lanterns even easier!
