"The statues of Tao Dan Park" Parks Tip by kokoryko
Parks, Ho Chi Minh City: 21 reviews and 45 photos
When you enter Cong Vien Tao Dan Park on Duong Nguyen Thi Minh Khai side, you are “welcomed” by a strange statue which I still do not know what it represents (first picture): a soldier? (What is he doing?) A scout? This certainly tells a story, but I cannot figure out. . . .
There are apparently marble surpluses in Vietnam, as I have seen lots of white marble statues in other places of Vietnam. . . . . On the East side the park is almost crowded with statues of all sorts of style, shapes, inspiration. . . . . (picture 2); well, you have to slow down your walk and have a look at some of them; some are interesting, like this “maternity” (picture 3), other are funny or really childish in their inspiration like the one on picture 4. I don’t know what Beethoven would think of this (picture 5) bust supposed to represent him; may be it is not him, as the engraved name is BETTHOVEN. . . . . . I would not like this in my garden. . . but sense for beauty is very variable among human. . . . .
