Platypus by lantern-light

The creative juices were flowing during the construction of this beautiful platypus lantern for the 2010 Camden Haven Music Festival’s Lantern Parade.

The lantern was mounted on a barge and was displayed to an appreciative crowd on dusk. The theme of the parade focused on the environmental importance of rivers to our local economy, the need to protect river animals and plants and the importance of sustaining the environment.

Hastings PACT constructed the platypus during a series of workshops with local artists.
