A calligraphy street has been established at the Labour Culture Palace in Ho Chi Minh City, honouring the distinguished tradition of the Lunar New Year (Tet).

The vibrant street exhibits the work of more than 50 calligraphers of varied ages, all gathering to perform their art.

Notably, the record-setting 500 kilogram prayer scroll conveying deep gratitude and appreciation towards mothering is on display at the event.

The festivities will run through February 17.

Calligraphy is considered an art of spirit, involving both external and internal beauty. The artists must invoke their mind and soul to create the lively handwriting and stir an emotional response.

In Vietnam, homes are commonly adorned with the artwork to bring best wishes for a new year of prosperity and happiness.-VNA
