Antique inspired zongzi packages
Guangdong Museum has created two types of gift boxes as the packages of zongzi with classic Cantonese flavors made by LN Garden Hotel. With light green and purple as the main colors, the gift boxes were inspired by one of the collections of Guangdong Museum, named "silk folding fan embroidered the pattern of dragon". Based on the pattern elements of cultural relics, the gift boxes feature flying dragons surrounded by clouds and waves, symbolizing elegance and auspiciousness.
