The Flower Cannons and Decorative Elements
A small Flower Cannon
This is an example of a smaller Flower Cannon from So Ku Wan. Flower Cannons range in height from six feet to nearly twenty feet, but twelve to fifteen feet is common. This one has a fine cloth bat at the top, and elaborately-dressed figures flanking the sides.
