The creator of the Hanoi Ceramic Road, painter Nguyen Thu Thuy, said that the work has been recognized in the Guinness World Records book.
The ceramic road is nearly 4 kilometers long, totaling around 7,000 square meters. Around 95 percent of the painting has been completed.
The painting includes 21 sections, running on the wall of the dike along the Red River, with various topics: honoring Vietnam’s history through patterns of the Ly, Tran, Le, and Nguyen dynasties; typical patterns on brocade, ceramic paintings of Hanoi by Vietnamese and international children; and contemporary paintings by Vietnamese and foreign artists.
On September 9, the road was lengthened by a 100m piece of ceramic painting featuring relations between Hanoi and other provinces and cities in Vietnam. Phan Thanh Son, lecturer of the Ceramic Faculty of the Hanoi Industrial Art University, designed the piece.
This work will be completed on September 25 to celebrate Hanoi’s great anniversary (October 1-10).
