"O Tincanbaum" or "Feed the World"

At Olympian City you can view another unusual Christmas display, structures made out of tinned food and drinks. It's great that all cans used in the installations will be donated to local food banks. Members of the public can go and vote for their favourite work and donate cans from their own pantries.

This Christmas tree stands 18 feet tall and is made with more than 2,000 cans of soft drinks.



This piggy bank uses 4483 tins of food.



Around 2200 tins make up this Santa Claus.



This angel uses 3500 tins.



Exactly 2985 tins form this bowl of soup.



I think the display is a clever way to merge a Christmas theme with charity. Pigs and soup do not necessarily come to mind when I think of Christmas, but that's Hong Kong for you! So which design is your favourite?
