Lotus Flowers – Wynn Palace Macau
Show Canada was entrusted with the mission to carry out the application of fine and delicate 23KT gold sheets on 23 lotus flowers architectural pieces installed on the Wynn Palace hotel site in Macau Cotai China.
The flowers of 3 different sizes were made of fibreglass by our client in their China factory: 11 flowers with an approximate diameter of 2 meters, 9 flowers with an approximate diameter of 3 meters and 3 more flowers exceeding 3 meters in diameter.
More than 170 rolls of 20 meters length and 11,500 small squares of gold sheets were applied to this monumental project. The gold was ordered directly from the manufacturer in Italy; family owned enterprise established and operating for over 400 years and now managed by the 16th generation. The application of gold sheets on external architectural element follows a method and ancestral tradition going back several centuries.
This very particular work of gold application has also been accomplished on China grounds by our Canadian team of 12 scenic painters, over a period of more than 7 weeks.
