The Chinatown neighborhood in Philadelphia, PA recently received a  streetscape enhancement program designed by Wells Appel in coordination with Orth-Rodgers  and the PADOT. Included are our bronze medallions featuring the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac.  Andrews / LeFevre Studios designed the medallions in a traditional paper-cut style in collaboration with the Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation.

In addition to the ninety-five 18″ medallions installed in the sidewalks, a 10′ medallion is positioned at the intersections of Ninth Street and Vine. A feng shui expert was called in to orient the location of the medallion on a proper East / West axis.
