Chinese Lions at Charles Darwin Uni

I’m taking a bit of artistic licence to celebrate the Eve of the Year of the Dragon. The Chinese have been an important part of Darwin’s multi-cultural environment for a very long time and their celebrations are part of the city’s rituals. The Chung Wah Society is an active community organisation.

These lions were an intrisic part of a Chinese wedding in the Chinese Gardens at Charles Darwin Uni a while ago. As with most weddings in Darwin it was during the Dry Season (which it isn’t right now) and I was lucky that our offices overlooked the Gardens and all the noise made it apparent something exciting was happening. Great way to end a working week.
