10,000 Chopsticks Form Huge Mythological Dragon

This giant dragon sculpture is an innovative creation made completely out of 10,000 chopsticks. Simply called Chopsticks Dragon, the piece was developed to promote the opening of Aziatage Caf, located in Yekaterinburg, Russia, which opened its doors in the spring of 2012 on the Day of the Dragon. In honor of the celebration and to attract the attention of residents in the area, Russia-based agency StreetArt assisted advertising agency Voskhod in producing the interactive piece.

During the public art installation, spectators were invited to participate in the creation of the legendary mythological creature. Each person was presented with a pair of chopsticks and asked to place the first one in an existing slot on the board while making a wish. The second served as an incentive to visit the caf, offering a 10% discount on their next meal. The final piece was installed next to the main entrance and serves as a visually enticing advertisement. If interested, you can check out the creative process in the video below.
