THE REAL HISTORY OF LANTERN ART

Zigong Lantern Group
PANTHEON_OF_THE_ORIGINAL_LAMP_MASTERS-removebg-preview (1)

According to Archaeologists, the invention of the lamp, occurred around 70,000 BC in the Mediterranean region. Vastly used throughout Ancient Egypt, and ultimately, the lantern art was innovated and established by the Greeks, which eventually advanced throughout the Roman Empire. In 600 BC, the Greeks invented terracotta lamps, thereby replacing the ancient handheld torches. The root of the modern lantern, was established by the Greeks. The word Lamp is even derived from the Greek word lampas. Shortly thereafter, handcrafted lamp art flourished throughout the Roman Empire, making the Roman Empire the largest supplier of handcrafted lamp art in the world. The Roman Empire simply continued the innovation, and organically shared it with the world; as the Roman Empire was the modern day global marketplace.

THE REAL HISTORY OF LANTERN FESTIVALS

The very first lantern festivals date back anywhere between 3,000 – 4000 BC, originating in Ancient Egypt, where numerous lamp festivals were celebrated.

If we examine the history of lantern celebrations in Ancient Asia, we will find that the 2 most historic traditions that involve the celebration of lights and lamps, which are still being practiced today, would be Diwali and Hanukkah. Diwali was introduced in Ancient India around 527 BC, meanwhile the Ancient Israelites (Asia minor) began their tradition of Festival of Lights after they defeated the Greeks around 164 BC.  Many years later, approximately 300-400 years later, the original lamp celebrations of Asia eventually began to influence Chinese culture.  The reason for this breakdown is mainly based on a common misrepresentation of historic facts, in reference to the history and origination of ‘lantern festival’

THE LANTERN FESTIVAL IS A TRADITION THAT ORIGINATES IN ANCIENT EGYPT, MORE COMMONLY A CELEBRATION IN THE ROMAN EMPIRE

Festival of Neith was an ancient Egyptian Festival that included celebration of lamps and lanterns. It was an annual festival that continued on for many years, even possibly influencing the Roman Empire’s popular lantern festival, Lychnapsia

Our Jungle Island Lantern Festival “Luminosa” exhibition gathered almost 100,000 people.
