The physical allure of the snake is explored in its sinuous form.

Inspired by the traditional art of Chinese kite-making, this golden snake flies above the public, representing prosperity and wealth.

The artists have also featured the Chinese happiness symbols in the eyes as a symbol of good fortune for the coming year.
