Giant Lantern Made of Recycled Materials

I noticed everyone who walked past Redhill Market today would stop and be impressed by this giant lantern. It's not hard to know why, because I was impressed by it too.

This giant lantern was very colourful, it was made of recycled bottles painted with beautiful pictures

I am very fortunate to meet the maker of this giant lantern, Mr Akira Takashi. He is a lantern-making enthusiast. According to Mr Takashi, he took 6 months to construct this giant lantern, including hand painted on every single recycled bottle.

This was the 26th lantern he made, and his work entered the Singapore Book of Record.
