MACAU ATTRACTIONS SERIES
Our iconic golden Tree of Prosperity with over 2,000 branches and 98,000 leaves composed of 24-karat gold leaf and brass leaf is a symbol of auspiciousness. Designed to thrill and excite guests as they enter Wynn Macau.
the Tree of Prosperity performance is a choreographic masterpiece of shimmering, sculptural patterns, music, video and light. This centerpiece which fills the atrium, depicting Chinese and western astrological symbols, rises from below at the finale of the performance and transforms into the vibrant colors of the four seasons.
We got here past 12 am on February 4, 20011. when I saw the place, my attention was immediately captured by the ceiling which shows the diffirent zodiac signs, I was still busy staring at it when the music suddenly played, the ceiling opened slowly while changing colors, then lights started appearing inside. The chandelier suddenly appeared and with it, the floor below opened showing the tree of prosperity below.
My wife was even shocked as she didn't expect it to open. Then the tree slowly moved upward as if growing while the chandelier moved downwards as if they are two lovers about to hug each other. Then the changing of the hues. I really didn't get the story. All I knew is that I was busy taking pictures and was amazed by the splendid display of light and sound.
I noticed people saying their wishes and throwing coins into the tree as if it was a wishing well. That instant, i thought the Chinese are more superstitious than us Filipinos. They adore the zodiac, the dragons and now this tree. I don't mind of coarse. I guess blogging has opened my eyes to be more accepting and respectful of people beliefs.
