Palace Lantern

Posted 2017/6/25



         A palace lantern is the illuminator hanging on the beam of a big hall. It is usually big in size and embedded with painted silk or glass panes around its body, giving a good decorative effect. Legend has it that Liu Xiu, Emperor Guangwu of the Eastern Han Dynasty unified the whole country and made Luoyang the capital city. To celebrate this remarkable achievement, the emperor decorated the imperial court with lanterns and colored streamers and gave grand feasts. The beautiful palace lanterns were quite a spectacle. Later, the skill of making palace lanterns was spread to ordinary people. But the name "palace lanterns" has remained.
