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.

About the artists amigo and amigo, co-founded by Simone Chua and Renzo B Larriviere, is a Sydney-based lighting and design studio that explores the combination of light and sculpture in public spaces.

The Lunar Lanterns will be lit from dusk each evening, but are just as impressive by day.
