Peace & Prosperity for Life

Granville and 14th

Inspired by the moon, this series incorporates the twenty-four solar terms of the traditional Chinese calendar and decorative window grilles to create beautiful lanterns to welcome a brilliant new year. The designs follow the four major solar terms: Beginning of Spring, Beginning of Summer, Beginning of Autumn, and Beginning of Winter. Flowers and plants can be seen growing through the Asian-style grilles. Can you spot the moon? She is also depicted in the relative positions of the moons during the above solar terms.
