Invasion of the paper-mache horde: Pandas World Tour Taipei






There is an army of 1,600 paper pandas occupying the streets of Taipei, Taiwan, attracting the attention of many people, including some of you who were busy taking photos and sharing them on Flickr.

The Pandas World Tour Taipei originated in 2008 when the WWF invited French artist Paulo Grangeon to show 1,600 handmade paper pandas in major European cities to highlight the danger of extinction of pandas and other species. It is the first time for these paper pandas to visit Asia.
