Lunar Lantern: The Dog

Loyal, smart and sociable, who doesn't love a dog?!

Produced by the City of Sydney

Artist Song Ling’s mysterious dog is painted in bright primary colours.

Floating between past, present and future, it casts its bright, inquisitive eyes upon the world, stopping only to hold up things of importance, so that we might be reminded of their spiritual value.

About the artist
Song Ling received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1984 from the China National Academy of Fine Arts. In 1988 he came to Australia and participated in some of the first exhibitions of contemporary Chinese art in this country. He is represented in many public and private collections. Ling has been a finalist in the Archibald Prize (2008 and 2011), Wynne Prize (2010 and 2011), Sulman Prize (2009) and the Blake Prize for Religious Art (2007).

About the zodiac animal
The zodiac symbol of The Dog can be characterised as loyal, smart and sociable. Dogs are a friend to many.
