VTV.vn - A 360-metre-long 3D painting portraying Vietnamese landscapes and traditional cultural values has been recognised as the longest 3D painting in Vietnam by the Vietnam Record Association, VietKings.

The painting, located along Ho Tung Mau Street in Cau Giay district, Hanoi, comprises 40 smaller ones, covering a total area of nearly 1,000 sq.m, focusing on four main themes: Dong Ho paintings, Vietnamese Fairy, Vietnam’s landscapes and Mid-Autumn Festival for children.

All the paintings were completed in one week, by 20 artists.

“Through those paintings, we want to present beautiful pictures and happiness to everyone, particularly children,” said Tran Van Minh, one of the artists who worked on the painting. “I hope that by looking at the paintings reviving Vietnamese folktales, the children will be reminded of the national history.”

Former Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Le Doan Hop said public paintings along the roads should be encouraged, as there are not many in Vietnam. 

“The paintings, which are closely associated with Vietnamese festivals like the national day or Mid-Autumn Festival, serve as a meaningful playground for children and a place for the whole family to visit as well,” he said.

“I found the paintings very beautiful. They have brought a new face to the roads. The city needs more roads like this,” said Luong Minh Hai, a resident of Cau Giay district.

Children seem to be the most excited about such vivid, colourful paintings.

“This is the first time I have ever seen such a beautiful and huge painting. I’m most impressed with the painting of children in the rural area happily playing traditional games and dancing in the Mid-Autumn Festival,” said Nguyen Cam Tu, a third-grader from Dich Vong A Primary School, adding that she would soon invite her classmates to witness the painting.
