Min Woo Bang’s magnificent pair of 6m tall horse lanterns take inspiration from traditional Korean village guardians. These totems were traditionally placed at the entrance to villages to mark boundaries and ward off demons. To reflect the more festive purpose of these horse guardians, the bodies of each lantern is embellished with vibrant, traditional Korean floral patterns. The legs and arms are detailed with red and green Dancheong designs which are found on the walls, pillars and eaves of traditional Korean wooden buildings.

Bringing each leviathan horse lantern to life is a glowing, pulsing heart that emanates light from within the centre of the chest.

You’ll find Min Woo Bang’s awesome horse lanterns at Circular Quay between French Connection and Searock Grill.

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