Mural paintings on lotus at Noi Bai International Airport inaugurated

Two large mural paintings, featuring lotus flower ponds, were inaugurated at Terminal 2 at Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi on January 3.

The paintings, covering a wall with a total area of 360 square metres, were created by painter Nguyen Thu Thuy and nine others from Tan Hanoi Art Company.

The paintings feature lotus ponds with the light of a sunset and white lotus flowers, creating a romantic and soft colour tone.

The lotus flower is the logo of the national flag carrier, Vietnam Airlines. It is also considered the country’s national flower.

Thuy and her colleagues previously created a piece of mural art covering a pillar that is 7.4m in height and 6.4m in diameter, featuring images of flowers and tropical trees at Da Nang International Airport.

The artwork won the bronze medal at the 10th International Design Awards.

She will send her design to compete in a number of international design contests and register at the Guinness Book of World Records Vietnam for the largest outdoor picture in Vietnam.
