LunarFest has been very popular with collectors who have the adorable paper-lanterns designed for the annual celebration. To ring in the Year of Ox, Taiwanese artist Yen-Chun Lu returns with another paper-art mastery in the Ox-Picious Lanterns. Inspired by the word Auspicious, it is quite fitting with the designs of using the dream catcher from the Indigenous peoples in North America and the art of window grilles from Taiwan. Blessed by the Xia Hai City God of Taipei, the Ox-Picious lanterns will help people start the new year on the right note.
Co-organized by SWACT, these Ox-Picious Lanterns also have an AR element! Be sure to download the UniteAR app, available on iOs and Android, and be amazed to discover what the lanterns have in store for you. Be sure to share your photos and #OxPiciousLantern with the Ox-Picious lanterns so all of us can still parade virtually with anyone who has the lantern.
