About the artwork
Since I was a boy, my parents have had two small marble statuettes of stylised lions - a gift from my father’s Chinese boss. They were painted gold, and said to be sentinels of good luck as they sat by our front door. So I’ve painted my Guide Dog gold and red, as a nod to that familiar Chinese New Year symbolism for prosperity and good luck. The colourful inlay under the dog - in the style of floral fireworks - is a salute to Sydney’s customary way of ushering in a new year against the night sky.
