Chinatown, Lunar Lanterns, Dog

Lunar Lanterns have been installed around the city to celebrate the 20th anniversary of City of Sydney’s Chinese New Year Festival. In the Chinese zodiac, every year is symbolised by an animal and this year is the Year of the Monkey. The Dog lantern is located in the Dixon Street pedestrian mall near Goulburn Street in Chinatown, in Haymarket. It was designed by Alex Sommer and Brad Clark and created in Chinese fabric. Dogs are loyal and honest, amiable and kind, although they are not always good at communicating.
