From the organizer:
ARE WE LUCKY?
The answer is: “YES, if you compared to HER!”
WHO IS SHE?
You can meet at the exhibition “STONE’S FLOWER”.
There will be two reasons, you will find yourself a lucky person:
1. If people have “Reincarnation Lives” then you are born in this life very fortunate to be “normal” and we have many opportunities to study, to live, to rise, and to do what we want and pursuit of happiness…
2. If you meet HER, you will feel that we are energized to live stronger because she can do it why not us?
Nguyen Thi Hoa, a name like many other ordinary Vietnamese woman’s name and probably has the same name as many people we know.
BUT THE DIFFERENCE IS:
Born in 1980, she is 38 years old and always has the body of a baby weighing 13kg, 70 cm height. During her 32 years of birth she was hidden by her family from neighbors. Being confined to four old walls, not able to go to school, without contacting the outside world. The body is always as soft as vermicelli with only unusual hands but can still move. Her heart is out of her chest, her ribs become loose, and she gets sick often…
Perhaps God does not take everything from anyone’s life when he gives her the wisdom to grow with the time of “An ordinary person”. At the age of 19 year old, she started to learn how to read and write and now she can do it very proficiently, and even compose great poems.
Especially with those weak hands and extraordinary energy, she can make beauty products for life. She also supports other people with disabilities and even help “normal” people to find jobs.
She does all of the personal daily-life activities by herself and even provide economic support for her parents.
But the vases of flowers are made from “artificial stone”, embroidered paintings, stone mosaics… all made from soft-hands but with a strong will.
This is not called: ART EXHIBITION – but “STONE’S FLOWER EXHIBITION” because it was unlike other Art Exhibitions for talented artists to present their works: paintings or statues.
This time, Hoa’s products may not yet be the artworks, it has not reached the level of sophistication that all people want to own.
These products are all made of the heart, the brain and the hands of that “SPECIAL PERSON”.
For this exhibition, we look forward to supporting Ms. Nguyễn Thị Hòa in promoting the products to the public.
Note that we will not accept cash assistance, but if you come and like the products of HOA you can buy to support her or if you buy and we can ship it to you.
Products are sold at 200,000 VND (8.5 USD) to more than 4 million VND (about 200 USD) each.
Opening Ceremony: 10:00 on January 5, 2019.
The exhibition will take place on the 5th to 6th of January 2019 in the same location.
When I see Hoa and her effort in the extremely hard life, I suddenly remembered the wisdom from Stephen Chbosky:
“We can’t choose where we come from but we can choose where we go from there”.
