Lunar Lantern: The Horse

When

Every day, all day Friday 12 February to Sunday 21 February

Cost

Free

Adaptable, loyal and courageous, the always-active Horse stands tall in the crowd. 

Taking on a robotic form, the Horses are embellished with vibrant Korean flowers and patterns including the dancheong which is found on traditional Korean wooden buildings.

The magnificent Horse lanterns make reference to traditional totem poles that identify village boundaries and serves as protective guardians. With an illuminated beating heart, the pair of 6m tall Horses are designed as modern guardians for the Lunar New Year.
