Spirit Dragon

Art Installation

Come appreciate the Spirit Dragon that was created to lift the community spirit especially in Vancouver Chinatown, during the COVID-19 pandemic when the community is facing much hardship and struggles. The 70 feet public art installation is made with mainly recycled materials and fabrics. Hanging on the wall of the Keefer Building (133 Keefer St.) facing the Memorial Plaza, the dragon body is built with many colourful recycled fabrics that the artists sourced from local Chinatown shops, mixing with large amounts of cut-up calligraphy pieces by artist, Lam Wong. The first batch of calligraphy works depicting the story, history and origin of the Fire Dragon Festival that started in the 19th century in Hong Kong. The second batch was written with text from Metta Sutta, a Buddhist Prayer of Compassion. This work is dedicated to all victims, businesses and people that are suffering during the pandemic. As a community we need to heal together. We hope the uplifting spirit of this large dragon can be the healing energy that spreads in the wind above Vancouver Chinatown.
