To commemorate the Year of the Dog, the eleventh position in the Chinese zodiac, The Venetian and The Palazzo’s floral and horticulture team worked with a team of artisans and consulted a feng shui master to create an installation that features a Chinese Shar-Pei, named Vincenzo Li that sits 16 feet tall.

The Shar-Pei existed in China since ancient times and was chosen as the featured canine for the display because it symbolizes good fortune and protection. The feature Shar-Pei was hand-sculpted and covered in artificial fur to achieve his robust appearance. There are nine additional Shar-Peis positioned throughout the resort, as well as a three-foot hare, the secret friend of the dog.
