An exhibition featuring ancient sculptures of lions and “nghe” – a fictional creature with lion-like head, long tail and dog-like body - opened in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho on March 12.

Nearly 60 exhibits sculpted out of stone, ceramic, terra cotta, wood and bronze dating back to the Ly, Tran, post-Le and Nguyen dynasties (from 10th to 19th century) are being put on show for the first time in the city, along with scientific documents on the position of the sacred animals in the Vietnamese culture.

The exhibition was earlier introduced to the public in Ha Noi, central Da Nang city, and Ho Chi Minh City , according to Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Dang Thi Bich Lien.

The event will come to the Central Highland province of Dak Lak , north-western region, and other localities across the country.

Organised by the Viet Nam Fine Arts Museum, the exhibition in Can Tho will run until March 23 at the Military Region 9 Museum in Ninh Kieu district.
