Chinese Lantern Festival

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 30 November 2013 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

The glow of the Chinese Lantern Festival continues to shine at Fair Park, in Dallas, Texas, until January 2014. The Festival is a beautiful way to celebrate the autumn nights and the sparkle of the season.

Brilliant, glowing, artworks comprise 25 stunning displays in a kaleidoscope of color. Like stained glass in 3-D, each lantern set is made of hundreds and thousands of individual pieces.

*Away for a few days. Catch up with you next week.

A very poetic atmosphere, and a good idea to have this during the night. I would like to see this temple by the day light.
Enjoy saturday, Catherine.
