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 western end of Martin Place features the Horse lantern, recalling the might of China’s ancient armies, depicting a chariot led by terracotta war horses. It was created by artist Jiahua (Justin) Qian, born in Nanjing, now living and working in Sydney. Horses are animated, active and energetic. They love to be in a crowd and to take centre-stage.
