Flowers tell stories of love

Twenty Vietnamese flower artisans are displaying original floral installation works at a new exhibition in Hanoi to celebrate Valentine's Day today.

The exhibition, entitled Love Party, opens until tomorrow at the Vietnam Women's Museum 36 Ly Thuong Kiet Street. Museum Director, Nguyen Thi Bich Van said the 20 floral installions are created by skillful hands of talented artisans who tell love stories through the colours and perfume of fresh (real) and artificial flowers made of clay and silk.

At the entrance of the museum, visitors can admire the romantic European Garden created by Meritorious Artisan Nguyen Manh Hung, which includes tulips, hortensia and other flowers, as well as small statues and a small artificial lake.

Another artwork, installed in the middle of the museum's yard, is entitled Colours of Love. Created by artisan Hoang Thu Nga from the Jolie flower company, 1,000 silk roses spell out the word "LOVE". Other highlights of the exhibition are a three-metre tall work made with thousands of small flowers, featuring the portrait of a happy young woman getting a flower basket sent by her lover. Exhibition entrance is free.
