The Lantern Festival is celebrated on the 15th day of the first Chinese lunar month, and traditionally ends the Chinese New Year period.
The exhibit consisted of huge lanterns constructed out of metal frames and silk coverings. During the day they were beautiful sculptures but it was a night that the magic happened. The lit lanterns, as well as some other sculptures that were created out of dishes and bowls were spectacular. I thought that during this period of the Chinese New Year it would be a great time to share some of the pictures I took.
