Venezuelan Ambassador to Vietnam Uzcategui and painter Nguyen Thu Thuy, along with other delegates, enjoy the mural featuring the Venezuelan national hero Simon Bolivar on the Hanoi Ceramic Road

The mural serves as another bridge to foster the friendship between Vietnam and Venezuela, as well as other Latin American countries, said Nguyen Thu Thuy, mastermind of the ceramic mural project.

The ceramic road project was completed in 2010 to celebrate the millennium anniversary of the establishment of Hanoi as the capital of Vietnam.

The Venezuela mural, which is 12 metres long and 2 metres high, is comprised of nearly one million ceramic pieces. It is located on the river dyke near where Au Co and Xuan Dieu streets meet.
Jorge Rondon Uzcategui, Venezuelan ambassador to Vietnam, said at the inaugural ceremony on November 20 that the country is honoured to be part of this artwork which was recognised by UNESCO in 2010 as the longest mural wall in the world.

He added that the presence of Venezuelan images on the mural is proof of the fine relationship between Vietnam and Venezuela, as well as the two countries’ aspiration for peace.

Simon Bolivar is honoured as a national liberator who sacrificed his life for the struggle against colonialism in Venezuela and other Latin American countries.

As part of the cultural exchange between the two countries, a bronze bust of President Ho Chi Minh has also been installed on the Simon Bolivar Boulevard in the Venezuelan capital of Caracas./.
