Witness the breathtaking sight of the Guardian – protector of the Spiritual Realm. An imposing creature reminiscent of a giant lion, the Guardian saunters through Carlton Gardens, safeguarding its kingdom and maintaining order.

From the creators of the White Knight Messenger, the Guardian’s ten-metre-long body is brought to life by seven talented puppeteers and shimmers with crystal-like shards that glow and change colour as it moves through and responds to its environment.

The Guardian is A Blanck Canvas’s largest creature to date, combining light, sound, smoke and puppetry to create a fantastical beast like something from a dream.
