The work on the roof of a conference building of the Big Truong Sa Island will be Vietnam’s biggest pottery mosaic of national flag by the Vietnam Guinness Book of Records.
This pottery mosaic is innitiated by artist Nguyen Thu Thuy, who is also the author of the “Pottery Road” along the Red River in Hanoi and was presented with the title of “Outstanding Citizen of Hanoi” in 2010.
The focal point of the pottery mosaic work is the Vietnam map with the five-pointed yellow star shining its lights at the Hanoi Capital’s position and some surrounding meaningful symbols such as the Ly dynasty’s dragon image, Khue Van Cac (Constellation of Literature pavilion), One-Pillar Temple in Hanoi, Thien Mu Temple in Hue, My Son Cham Towers, Nha Rong Wharf in HCMC and Uncle Ho’s statue.
Besides, outer sides of the lag depict Vietnamese long-lasting history attaching to the East Sea, with images of the Dong Son boats in Hung Kings and in feudalist regimes fighting against their enemies to big vessels in modern time.
It is a great idea to affirm Vietnam’s sovereignty right over Truong Sa as well as Hoang Sa (Paracel) Archipelagos, said Senior–Lieutenant Colonel Dinh Van Hai, Head of the Truong Sa Island.
