The birth of the Dragon Lantern 2010

The Dragon lantern was created for the AIMST Lantern Festival 2010. Created from wire-frame and colored paper, students taken about 1 month to complete it. The wire-frame creation is the hardest part as it involved bending hard iron wires and shape it with geometry precision so that the final wire-frame don’t collapse on its own weight. The frame is created start from the head section. Concept and Design by RIG
