Hanoi-Lecture and exhibition – The Nghe

Nov 15, 2 pm – 5:30 pm
Fine Art Museum, Public Education Room, 66 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street

From the organizer:

Vietnam has 4 sacred animals – the dragon, phoenix, Qilin (Kỳ lan) and the turtle. However, there is a 5th which you may not be aware of. Next time you see what you think is a lion statue at a place of worship pay close attention – it may not be a lion at all ….
“To comprehend the symbol of the Nghe is to comprehend the traditional culture of Vietnam” (Dr Đinh Hồng Hải)

The Nghe is a sacred animal sculpture found at gates and doors of pagodas, temples, communal houses in Vietnam. It symbolises loyalty and intelligence. The first Nghe statues appeared in the 15th century and became popular from the Ly Dynasty to the end of the Tay Son Dynasty (the 11th to 18th century) (from wikipedia)

Art Researcher Trần Hậu Yen Thế will explain all there is to know about the Nghe. The Fine Arts museum is the venue for the launch of his new book Nghe Viet. In recognition of this, an exhibition of the Nghe and decorative art work from children under Thế’s guidance plus the fact few people have carried out such extensive research into this unique Vietnamese symbol, FVH is hosting an afternoon dedicated to this mysterious sacred animal which fills the pages of Thế’s mini book.

Language: Vietnamese and English.

Registration at: stella@fvheritage.org

Fee: VND200,000 (excluding museum entrance fee VND40,000) to cover contributions to our speakers, private exhibition tour, Nghe dance and refreshments
