Cham sculpture catalogue launched in Da Nang

A catalogue comprising new photographs of the world’s leading collection of Cham sculpture was launched in central Da Nang city on December 21.

The catalogue, titled “Vibrancy in Stone – Masterpieces of the Da Nang Museum of Cham Sculpture”, comes as the result of a cooperation project between the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) under the University of London and the Da Nang Museum of Cham Sculpture.

It also gathers the most recent reports of Vietnamese and international scholars in the field of history, archaeology and art history.

The Cham culture thrived in magnificent temples, sculpture, dance and music along the central and southern coast of Vietnam from the 5th to the 15th century.

The project, which started in 2015, intends to publish a new catalogue to mark the 100th anniversary of the Da Nang Museum of Cham Sculpture, said the museum’s Director Vo Van Thang.

He noted that the museum has recently been expanded and refurbished after a century.-VNA/VNP
