Nostalgic Lanterns

Exhibit Features

Amid warm feelings of nostalgia, visitors to the Nostalgic Lanterns exhibit can immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of the beautiful olden days.

The artists who created the Nostalgic Lanterns make clever use of lights and shadows to take visitors back to a simpler time before the birth of cell phones and computers.

The skills and artisanship of the lantern creators also recreate a traditional “bull fight parade” and present images of children flying kites and playing with slingshots.

When the lanterns are lit, let’s go back together to the good old days and feel touched by a joyful lifestyle.
