The 2019 Taipei Lantern Festival Theme Lantern, Zhu Bao the Twinkling Transformer, is the first lantern to utilize digital display technology on a 5.5 million-pixel LED screen, giving Zhu Bao a range of dynamic facial expressions. The creator and artistic director of the work explains that the transforming Zhu Bao symbolizes a free spirit who wishes all friends a happy and successful new year.
