Biggest vase made of coconut shell to be displayed (December 21, 2004)

A vase made of coconut shell, 3.62 m high and 404 kilos in weight, which is the biggest in Vietnam, will be displayed at the Centre for Culture and Exhibitions in the central province of Phu Yen on the occasion of the 2005 Lunar New Year Festival.

The vase, named ‘Hung King's Legend’, was carved with embossed designs, illustrating four well-known national legends including ‘Lac Long Quan-Au Co’, ‘Tien Dung-Chu Dong Tu’, and six images of Vietnamese history and diverse culture, including the Dong Son Bronze Drum, the Ancient Boat, and the ‘rong’ house in Tay Nguyen Central Highlands.

The creation of the vase aims to promote Phu Yen's fine arts and handicrafts sector, said Pham Hong Binh, owner of the Binh SVC enterprise which made the vase. This work was launched in early October, 2003.

In September, 2004, the Vietnam Guinness Book of Records listed, a ceramic vase 3.2 m in height and 175 kg in weight, made by artisan Le Minh Ngoc from Bat Trang, Hanoi. (VNA)
