Art Inspiration: 天燈 (Sky Lantern)

The sky lantern “is a small hot air balloon made of paper, with an opening at the bottom where a small fire is suspended.

In Asia and elsewhere around the world, sky lanterns have been traditionally made for centuries, to be launched for play or as part of long-established festivities. The name sky lantern is a translation of the Chinese name but they have also been referred to as sky candles or fire balloons. In Thai, they are known as khom loi.“—- Wikipedia

This photo was taken when I visited Taiwan many year ago. There was a group of us, so we all wrote a wish on the lantern.

Have you seen a lantern like this before?
