Before Christmas I went to a wonderful and unexpected lantern parade– a big procession of lights and sounds- lanterns and people, giant puppets, and bands and drums and costumes and fireworks. It was very exciting and a feast for the senses in lots of different ways.
It was quite mystical and also felt interactive- being loomed over by spooky characters, and getting the urge to dance along with the prossession with the various drum bands.
Afterwards, I made drawings of lots of the differently shaped lanterns and characters. I wanted to remember the event and how magical and mysterious it had felt.
