It is the Chinese Year of the Snake and to commemorate the significance of this Chinese New Year, Giant Robot gallery is hosting an exhibition featuring creative snake designs.

Many different artists were commissioned to create a piece for the zodiac celebration and it is intriguing to see all the different interpretations of snakes and their symbolic meanings. Snakes are often seen as deadly and terrifying creatures, yet in Chinese tradition, it is wished that the snake will bring prosperity and happiness. The contradiction of emotions towards this reptile is evident in the artwork, some displaying the alluring and enchanting portrayal of the snake, and others veering towards a more cryptic and aggressive portrayal.
