Harbin Culture Park is currently hosting a lantern show, in an effort to promote traditional lantern craftsmanship and boost the development of the local tourism industry.

There are 35 large lantern installations on display, which are the work of 80 lantern craftsmen from Zigong city, Southwest China’s Sichuan province.

The show includes a sculpture in the shape of a dragon, which is made up of around 10,000 blue and white porcelain wares manufactured in China’s porcelain capital, Jingdezhen city.

The show opened on Sept 7 and will conclude on Oct 25.
