From the organizer:
Folk paintings have been an indispensable part of the Vietnamese tradition during Tet (Lunar New Year) for a long while. It is something even deeper and stronger than Chung cake, as the red couplets.
Each year is related to a sign of the zodiac according to the 12-year cycle, and year of the Rooster 2017 is coming on the air. The rooster is a vital part not only of folk paintings but also Vietnamese spirit which is well-known as Dai Cat, Thu Hung, Vinh Hoa, Ga Mai Tuc Moi. It generally reflects the meaning of life and human desires and also symbolizes the loyalty, a sociable nature and a punctuality that is bound to impress. This boisterous bird calls out dawn while proudly puffing his chest, signs up the awesomeness for a start.
Smelling the 2017 rooster spirit in obvious, our artist Ha Hoang has some outstanding folk paintings for Tet to share. A great occasion to come exploring the meaning of Roosters in Vietnamese culture, looking back to the pass one year or just simply sharing laughs, joy and spread your cheers.
