A couple of years ago we went to the Mahbili festival on the shores of lake Jabiru in Kakadu National Park. 
It is a celebration of indigenous culture featuring Aboriginal dance, food, music, basketry, crafts and spray-can art. Scattered throughout the trees were the most magnificent paper and cane lanterns of huge proportions. They were all animals native to the area, superbly decorated with traditional earth tones. As dusk fell the lanterns were lit giving a gorgeous luminous glow to the site.
