VietNamNet Bridge â€“ Vietnamâ€™s largest embroidery painting named â€śWish of a Thousand Yearsâ€ť was brought to Kinh Thien palace inside the Thang Long royal citadel on September 28 as a gift for Hanoi on its great anniversary.
Embroiderers started making this painting in 2006 at Hanoiâ€™s Van Mieu (Temple of Literature). The work was completed after nearly 1,000 days by nearly 3,000 artisans from the XQ Vietnam Embroidery Painting Company.
The painting is 4m long, 3m wide and 167.5kg weigh. If these numbers are multiplied, the result will be 2010.
The embroidery painting features a brilliant lotus and the letter â€śSâ€ť for Vietnam in the lotus lake, with a temple, clouds, moon, cranes, and old villages.
The giant painting began its trip from Da Lat to Hanoi on September 2. The procession lasted for 24 days, through 14 provinces and cities, to arrive in Hanoi on September 28.
On behalf of Hanoi people, Hanoi Party Secretary Pham Quang Nghi received the painting from XQ Vietnam and sent the sincere thank to artisans.
This giant painting will be displayed with XQ Vietnamâ€™s 12 unique embroidery paintings in the Thang Long Royal Citadel from now until October 10.
