The City of Sydney is ushering in the Year of the Ox with the unveiling of 12 lanterns in its annual Lunar Lanterns exhibition, which runs from Friday, February 12 to Sunday, February 21. Each larger-than-life illuminated artwork symbolises one of the signs of the Chinese zodiac, with the free exhibition spanning from Circular Quay all the way to Haymarket.

This year's new additions include a pair of Oxen adorned with endless knot necklaces as a symbol for good luck and a luminous yellow- and pink-hued dragon, both standing proud on Dixon Street.

Other glowing animals to look out for include Qian Jian Jua's impressive pink pig; a slithering, suspended snake; an origami-like rabbit; Louise Zhang's eight-metre-tall tower of monkeys; and a small herd of electric sheep inspired by Philip K Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?.

To help you navigate the animals, you can take a virtual walk and examine the map through the Sydney Culture Walks app.
