Sydney exhibition features Nguyen Dynasty-inspired artworks, designs

Artworks and designs inspired by Vietnamese culture during the Nguyen Dynasty were showcased at an exhibition in Sydney, Australia, last week.

The exhibition, called Present from the Past, was organized by the Vietnam Centre � a non-profit NGO that promotes Vietnamese culture to the world.

Though the Nguyen Dynasty lasted only 143 years, between the early 19th century and the middle of the 20th century, the imprint it left on Vietnam's cultural identity is undeniably profound. The culture of that era has been an endless inspiration and abundant resource for artists and designers.
