Every year in fall, the Montreal Botanical Garden hosts "The Magic of Lanterns", a dazzling exposition of lighted hand-made paper sculptures in the finest Chinese tradition. This year’s theme was "In the Kingdom of the Birds". I’ve posted a few samples in the Traveling Colors gallery, also accessible directly via the thumbnails below.
