An array of archaeological objects found in Thang Long Imperial Citadel since 2010 are being displayed in an exhibition that opened in Hanoi on October 1.

Organised by the Thang Long-Hanoi Heritage Conservation Centre, the event is part of a series of activities to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the capital’s Liberation Day (October 10).

The exhibits include a dragon head-shaped statue belonging to the Tran Dynasty and seals, and ancient decorations.

The event offers the public the chance to look closely at the power symbols of Vietnam’s past dynasties, including Ly, Tran, Le So, Mac, Le, Le Trung Hung and Nguyen.

It also helps visitors learn more about the global value of the Royal Citadel heritage site.

In addition to the archaeological findings, 200 photographs and documents on the construction and history of the citadel are on display, as well as information on current research and preservation projects.

On the same day, an art exhibition was launched in Hanoi by the municipal Fine Arts Association together with the International Fine Arts Exchange Association of Busan in the Republic of Korea (RoK).

The art collection displays 104 pieces by Vietnamese and RoK artists, including paintings, prints and sculptures, depicting the two countries’ landscapes, cultures and people.-VNA
