Berwick's Buddhist Temple of Victoria celebrated the Buddhist birthday by creating a lantern made of more than 300 bundles of wool and 1500 drawing pins.

The unique lantern is a decoration made every year to symbolise the Buddha and in past years the lanterns were created from paper, tissue paper and bamboo.

Buddhist monk Saddhanusari spent more than a month constructing the two-metre high piece of art.
