The exhibition, entitled “The Flight Of The Dragon – Royal Art of Vietnam “, will feature 89 artifacts dating back to the Dong Son – a Bronze Age culture centered at the Red River Valley in northern Vietnam — to the Nguyen Dynasty (1802-1945), Vietnam’s last feudal institution.
The objects, selected from the archives of the Vietnam National Museum of History, were packed and transferred to the Guimet museum officials June 18-22, the Hanoi-based museum said.
The highlights will include a collection of precious objects carved with images of dragon belonging to the Nguyen Dynasty like a golden book, a golden seal and imperial crowns and diadems made of gold and gemstones.
In Vietnam tradition, the dragon occupies a privileged position within the bestiary of mythical creatures instead, sa a representative of the Vietnam National Museum of History.
At once terrifying and beneficial, this fascinating chimera manifests the dynamic nature of its protective and beneficial role in one aspect at a time and lively gesticulating with Vietnamese artists for centuries, describes the meanders.
The exhibition is being organized as part of the France-Vietnam Year 2013-2014. It will run until September 15.
