Chinatown, Lunar Lanterns, Ox

 Lunar Lanterns have been installed around the city to celebrate the Sydney Lunar New Year Festival. This year is the Year of the Ox in the Chinese zodiac. The Zodiac symbol of the Ox is known for its diligence, dependability, strength and determination. Two Ox lanterns have been installed in the Dixon Street pedestrian mall in Chinatown, in the inner city suburb of Haymarket. They were designed by Chrissy Lau, who was inspired by the familiarity of the Japanese Maneki-neko beckoning cat which has been adopted into Chinese culture.
