To celebrate the start of the Chinese New Year of the sheep, two Chinese-inspired Shaun sculptures made a special appearance in Chinatown earlier this week.Shaun-wordpress

Jingtai, designed by Simon Farrell, is inspired by the ancient Chinese Cloisonné style, seen on ceramics and jewellery from the 14th century in China, with the pottery often referred to as Jingtai Blue.

Ashley Boddy’s mystical Shanghai-Shaun was inspired by legendary mythological dragons in Chinese folklore, symbols of power, strength and good luck.

The sculptures will join a London trail hitting the capital’s streets on Saturday 28th March until Monday 25th May to raise funds for Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Charity, supporting children in hospitals across the UK.
