Sheep aren’t so Baaah-d

LunarFest 2015 is about celebrating the Year of the Sheep – a lunar symbol that is traditionally related to the qualities of being kind, caring and polite. It’s the time to embrace those characteristics and work towards healing, diplomacy, as well as embracing your creative side.

Inspired by the lunar symbol of the sheep, Asian Canadian Special Events Association got creative and crafted 500 sheep lanterns to be placed throughout Harbourfront Centre in the art installation, World’s Little Shepherds. Lighting up the creativity a number of local artists have added a little décor to beautify the sheep.

How did they make 500 sheep? Watch the video below to see how it was made:
