A rose may still be a rose even if called by another name, but these roses definitely won’t smell as sweet.
They’re artificial roses, 25,000 of them, made with LED lights, set up as a massive public art project in Hong Kong.
The installation is called Light Rose Garden, and is designed to combine the western holiday of Valentine’s Day with the Asian Lantern festival.
Yong Jin Yung works with one of the companies involved in the project.
“So the main concept is to spread love and happiness to many people. So anyone can come and enjoy here with their family and friends and their lovers.”
The concept succeeded with accountant Bernard Fong and his girlfriend, who were also excited to be part of an international event.
“Yeah, I think, I think it is a bit (romantic) and I think it’s awesome.
The garden was first set up in Seoul, South Korea.
Hong Kong is the first stop on what organizers hope will be a global journey to spread their light around the world.
