Place Bellecour - Lyon festival of Lights 2018

 ‘Une petite place pour de grands rêves’ (‘A small place for big dreams’) by Moetu Batlle and David Passegand

Bellecour square will be illuminated to illustrate a child’s bedroom, featuring the Anooki – two characters inspired by Inuits.

The Anooki made their first appearance during the 2012 Fête des Lumières, when they were situated in Saint-Paul train station. The figures were an instant hit with the public and have become easily recognisable figures since.

Anooki on place Bellecour

One of the characters, Nooki, will be playing with the statue of Louis XIV on Place Bellecour, whilst the other, Anook, will be playing with a real fire engine.

The illuminated wheel is also back!
