At the upcoming Lantern Festival in Taichung, sparkling curves intersect in mid-air taking you to a “Fantastical Forest Land”.

One of the theme lanterns is this beautiful woman. She gracefully presents a pan from which water flows forth. This lovely lantern is a symbol of both water… and its source. She displays the relationship between nature and mankind. Her sparkling ethereal spirit graces the festival with an exotic lightness. At 5 meters tall, she is one of the stars of this year’s Taiwan Lantern Festival.

Taichung official Chiang Chun-long says the background is the Houfeng Railroad tracks and the Dajia River. The river is the source of water for the more than 2.8 million residents of Taichung.
