HA NOI (VNS)  — A calligraphy exhibition prays for peace for the soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the nation's liberation.

Entitled Requiem on Long Bien Bridge, the exhibition displays nearly 300 artworks by remarkable calligraphers Cung Khac Luoc, Trinh Tuan, Le Quoc Viet and Nguyen Quang Thang.

They use calligraphy to express their love for Long Bien Bridge, which has witnessed war, peace, sacrifice and desire for liberty, while also portraying the beauty of the bridge.

Maison des Arts owner Nguyen Nga organised the exhibition to start the new year and pray for the millions of souls who protected the bridge in past years.

"I also pray for the beloved bridge," she said. "I expect that it will be preserved as time goes by."

Tomorrow, visitors to the exhibition will be treated to a special performance of chau van (spiritual singing) in harmony with jazz.

The exhibition will run until April 3 at Maison des Arts, 22 Hai Ba Trung Street, Ha Noi. — VNS
