Dragon Artwork in the Central Market

The Central Market is quite a sad place in Hong Kong Central. Many years ago it used to be a fresh food market, actually the largest meat market in Southeast Asia.

The Bauhaus structure was opened in 1939 and is four storeys high. It had room for 200 booths. The market was closed in March 2003 and since then plans have been discussed in how to renovate and reuse it.

There is only one walkway that is still open – it connects the IFC to the Mid-levels escalator. There are a few shops one one side, and an exhibition space on the other.

The exhibition changes regularly and last week there were some dragon sculptures, which symbolise life, existence and growth:
