Year of Sheep. LunarFest Vancouver 2015 brings many little sheep as art display in front of Vancouver Art Gallery.
It is fun and cute to see so many lovely display cute sheep lining together spread out the ground.
From a high bird-view, it is not hard to notice two Chinese characters shown in front of viewers’ eyes. The two letters are mean lucky and sheep. It means to bring good fortune to everyone who visited.
I enjoy this artist’s sheep the most. It is clever to combine traditional elements and materials for the design. It really turns a simple display into a beautiful collection.
Of course, the dragon dance is one of the highlights of the Lunar New Year celebration in Chinese tradition. To play this dragon requires a solid material base and technics.
All the gorgeous performers are coming from the National University of Tainan and the high school of Taiwan.
I truly enjoy the dragon dance which is different from than traditional style. Watching a different kinds of dragons playing on the stage.
Especially the last dragon, Lotus Dragon, is the most fascinating one. Performers assemble the dragons by lotus flower on the stage. And playing this unique one under the black light to demonstrate the fluorescent effect.
This year, the LunarFest date has met up with the Lunar New Year celebration and Chinatown parade which attracts more people and tourism than ever. I am looking forward to seeing what surprise LunaFest will showcase next year. Happy Lunar New Year!!
