Two artists created a huge dragon sculpture with balloons to welcome the Chinese New Year. Their art made it to the Guinness World Records list.
A video of a huge dragon sculpture created using balloons to celebrate Chinese New Year has left people in awe. Guinness World Records (GWR) took to social media to share the video that shows the “largest balloon sculpture of a dragon” created by two artists at a Hong Kong shopping mall.
“Largest balloon sculpture of a dragon, 41.77 metres – by Sze Tai Pang and Kun Lung Ho,” GWR wrote as they shared the video. The video shows the sculpture’s intricate design.
According to a GWR blog, the colossal dragon is crafted by balloon masters Sze Tai Pang aka ‘Wilson’ and Kun Lung Ho with the help of “60 individuals, including organisers, university students, and secondary school students”. They used nearly 38,000 biodegradable rubber balloons for the sculpture. The dragon was later suspended from the mall’s ceiling to give a better view to the onlookers.
How did Instagram users react to the dragon sculpture?
“Amazing art,” wrote an Instagram user. “This is the kind of record I want to see more of,” posted another. “Wow,” added a third.
