Cost

The horse zodiac is animated, active and energetic and these attributes have inspired this lantern.

Referencing drawings and continuous-line sketches of horses, the lantern captures the fluidity and motion of this majestic animal. Like the famous Vietnamese horse paintings, the bodies curves are both graceful and charged with energy. As if traced in neon light, the sinuous shape of the horse glows, while a stretched fabric skin completes the image.
