To celebrate Chinese New Year, the Venetian in Las Vegas unveiled an installation inspired by the Year of the Pig. The resort’s floral and horticulture team partnered with a team of artisans and consulted a feng shui master to create an installation anchored by a 3,000-pound, 16-foot-tall golden pig. Additional decor included hanging Chinese lanterns and a base of giant gold coins. According to custom, it is suggested to guests that they walk clockwise around the display three times to bring blessings of heaven, earth, and mankind upon them.
