Decorations are everywhere as Hong Kong prepares for the lunar new year, and this includes shopping malls and window displays. Although most references are to the year of the “goat”, the sheep and the ram also represent this animal in the Chinese zodiac. It is fun to see how different brands interpret the symbols in ways that are aligned with their aesthetic. Some displays are literal, others are more abstract, and many are works of art. From huge plush toys and realistic statues, to wooden sculptures, origami and animals made of glass and cardboard. Some displays are colourful, while others are neutral and monotone.
