Falling on 1-3 February, Singapore’s Chinatown, as per usual, is adorned with festive decorations for the Chinese New Year Festival. To welcome the Year of the Tiger, the decorations feature gigantic replicas of the big cat, with a particularly large and impressive display overlooking the junction at Upper Cross Street and New Bridge Road.
This year, the Chinatown Festival Organising Committee is also collaborating with the World Wide Fund for Nature (Singapore) and Temenggong Artists-in-Residence. Local artists were invited to paint different tiger sculptures, which will be displayed around Chinatown to promote the importance of global animal conservation and the environment.
The eye-catching lanterns were designed by students from the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). Showcasing a family of five tigers, the centrepiece of the decorations is meant to signify reunion, harmony and prosperity.
