The Venetian and The Palazzo Las Vegas Debut Chinese New Year Display at The Waterfall Atrium and Gardens
Chinese New Year
has arrived inside The Waterfall Atrium and Gardens of The Palazzo Las Vegas. To commemorate the Year of the Monkey, The Venetian and The Palazzo’s floral and horticulture team worked with a team of artisans and consulted a Feng Shui master to create the massive Chinese New Year display (Pictured: The Monkey King sits 5-feet tall and weighs 300 pounds)

Throughout The Venetian and The Palazzo, guests will find 78 handcrafted monkeys, each with a unique, hand-painted face. The main feature of the display is the five-foot tall, 300-pound Monkey King seated at the base of the 38-foot-tall wishing tree. His chest plate is made up of more than 8,000 hand-sewn gold coins and he is draped in Swarovski crystals.

Among the wishing tree’s 8,000 branches of golden foliage are 28 young and somewhat mischievous monkeys. The number 28 is an auspicious number in Chinese culture, representing “easy fortune.” There are also eight giant, hand-painted peaches covered in Swarovski crystals. The monkeys that are extending a peach are wishing guests a long life.
