The monumental 9-ton sculpture ‘Wish’ by American artist Rob Buchhloz represents three dandelions blowing in the wind. Praised as a powerful statement of today’s pop-culture-influenced world, ‘Wish’ stands 50 feet tall and comprises 70 seeds filled with 36,000 LED lights. ‘Wish’ was commissioned by the Hong Kong Tourism Board for Christmas 2014.
