Lantern style sculptures of a dragon and a phoenix from the Chinese culture are on lighted display at the Esplanade in George Town. These sculptures are made for the Chinese New Year celebrations in February but due to the pandemic and movement control order, not many people managed to visit them. Therefore, they are still being put on display till now.
