Lunar Lantern: The Roosters

amigo and amigo’s stunning 8 metre high sculptures return

Produced by the City of Sydney

The 2 Roosters engaged in a dancing fight symbolise their strength and courage in opposing the adversity of the coming year. The Rooster lantern is presented by Ayam.

To highlight the Roosters’ beauty and confidence, vibrant colours feature throughout their feathers. The lanterns tower 8 metres in height, ensuring that these 2 magnificent creatures are the centre of attention.
