Translated by Bing
The exhibitions that take place during this time are all related to Tet, helping visitors have a deeper view of the most important holiday of the year of the Vietnamese people.

Tigers in ancient Vietnamese art

The exhibition "Tiger in Ancient Art of Vietnam" was organized by the National History Museum in collaboration with Hung Temple Historical Site and a number of private collections to be displayed at No. 1 Trang Tien, Hanoi, open from January 18 to August 31. Visiting the exhibition at the beginning of the year, visitors will understand more about tigers, mascots of the year.

The exhibition features more than 30 artifacts and documents on tiger figures in different stages of 2,000 years of Vietnamese art. The displays of tiger images transformed in history have shown the deep closeness between the Vietnamese people and nature and all species, especially with the tiger species which is considered a fierce beast in legend.
