Knotty Notions

Giant Glowing Mystic Knots

Somewhere in China there is (or was) a street lined with giant glowing mystic knots.

Here’s some more links to pictures (and descriptive text in Chinese) of the giant glowing knots:

Based solely on the images, I’m guessing that this blog is from the manufacturer or supplier of the giant glowing knots who is reporting on appearances of the same.


What material are the knots

What material are the knots made out of to give them that effect when the lights are shining on them?

I don't believe that the knots are glowing because a light is shining on them. I think they are knot-shaped constructions with lights embedded in them. Like a lamp that just happens to be knot-shaped. That said, last winter I bought some decorative lights (a flexible transparent plastic tube with LEDs inside) on sale after the season was over and was planning to tie it into a knot. Reading the safety disclaimers about heat and the possibility of the whole thing bursting into flames if it wasn't hung out straight dampened my enthusiasm, but maybe this year I'll try tying it and take some pictures before it bursts into flames. 8) 8)
