THE REAL HISTORY OF LANTERN ART

Interestingly to many, Lantern Art was established by the Greeks and advanced throughout the Roman Empire under the influence of Western Culture.

If we want to get even more technical, the very first handcrafted lamp ever recorded in all of history, happened in 70,000 BC, discovered in the Mediterranean regions.

In 600 BC, the Greeks invented terracotta lamps, thereby replacing the ancient handheld torches. These were handcrafted lamps that became an art form. The word Lamp is even derived from the Greek word lampas. Shortly thereafter, handcrafted lamp art flourished throughout the Roman Empire, making the Roman Empire the largest supplier of handcrafted lamp art in the world.

Much later, this art form was accepted into Chinese culture during the Han Dynasty around 200 BC. Initially, a western influence became a major influence in China as well, evolving into global acceptance. Lantern art is now almost symbolic to China, as the largest worldwide hub for handcrafted lantern art is presently located inside Zigong, Sichuan Province of China.

Jungle Island, Miami, FL

The 2019/2020 season was our first year of cooperation with Jungle Island in Miami, FL. The exhibition was called “Luminosa,” taking on a very Miami/South Florida theme. “Luminosa” is just part one of what will be an annual tradition in Miami for years to come.

Our Jungle Island Chinese Lantern Festival “Luminosa” exhibition gathered almost 100,000 people. Our combined efforts shocked Miami as the first, only, and largest handcrafted artistic lumination exhibition in the entire state of Florida. This was the unique Chinese Lantern Festival operating in the world. We are proud of our creativity combined with our flexibility to develop any theme imaginable.
