Created by Chinese artist Xia Nan for the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008, the Lanterns of the Terracotta Warriors have previously only been shown in China and the United Kingdom, and are in Australia for the first time as part of the City of Sydney’s Chinese New Year Festival 2015. Illuminated against the beauty of Sydney Harbour for 10 days and nights only, this unique exhibition is an unforgettable experience.
