Description: This painting illustrates the image of LANTERNS in china town coupling with some dark abstract iron gate on the background. The most common Chinese lanterns are red, oval shaped, and decorated with red or golden tassels. Typically, they come in many different shapes including square, rectangle, and spherical. In ancient China, they were used to provide light and eventually as aspects of Buddhist worship. Today, they are used only for decoration and modern forms of celebration and worship. Lanterns have become a symbol of national pride in China and are used to decorate homes and public places. The Chinese Lantern Festival takes place on the 15th day of the first lunar month in the Chinese New Year. Lanterns hung at Chinese New Year are thought to scare aware the Nian monster (a Nian is a beast that lives under the sea or in the mountains) and bring good luck.
