This winter, Edinburgh Zoo will be home to The Giant Lanterns of China, an installation of over 450 dazzling giant lanterns that will illuminate the zoo for 50 awe-inspiring nights.
From December 1st to February 25th, the zoo will become the only place in Scotland to host such an event – lighting up Edinburgh’s skyline with the glow of 34 colossal, animal-themed lantern installations.
A total of 150 Chinese craftsmen from Sichuan Province will create a trail around the zoo. It's expected that the job will take the craftsmen a staggering 25,000 hours to complete.
