Upstairs Gallery - Metal Rat jewellery exhibition - Lopdell Precinct - Titirangi


Come see this collection of jewellery works all made by local artists to celebrate the year of the Metal Rat for the Chinese New Year.

The Year of the Rat is the first zodiac sign in the Chinese zodiac cycle. According to the Chinese zodiac story, in the competition held by the Jade Emperor to decide the zodiac animals, the quick-witted rat asked the diligent ox to take him on a ride to cross the river. The rat jumped down before the ox crossed the finish line and won the race to become the first of the zodiac animals.

Please come in and see these beautiful pieces that are now on show. we are open everyday from 10am to 4pm. The exhibition runs through until Sunday 23 February.

31 January - 23 February
