Las Vegas, Nevada (Jan. 21, 2021) – The Venetian® Resort Las Vegas invites guests to celebrate Chinese New Year with a photo-worthy art installation, special food and beverage menus, and retail offerings for the holiday.
THE YEAR OF THE OX ART INSTALLATION
To commemorate the Year of the Ox, the resort’s floral and horticulture team worked with artisans to create the feature animal of the custom display, which stands 13 feet tall and is surrounded by IChing coins displaying the symbols for prosperity, good health, happiness, and luck.
The colossal ox is female and named Alessandra Heng. The name Alessandra pays tribute to her Italian home and means “defender of mankind”. Her surname means “steady and persistent.” The ox is the second animal in the Chinese zodiac and is known as intelligent, honest, and reliable.
The element for the Year of the Ox is metal, which is represented by her metallic gold horns, tail, nose, and hooves, and the gold armor on her legs.

Celebrate the Year of the Ox with lunar libations at The Cocktail Collective bars, each offering one Chinese New Year cocktail exclusive to its location.
St. Remy VSOP, Mount Gay Black Barrel Rum, Maraschino, lime and orange
