The world’s largest ceramic mosaic is located in Hanoi, Vietnam. Awarded a Guinness World Records certificate, it is 3,850 meters long and almost one meter tall. Each tile is only 3 by 3 cm, and the artwork goes along the walls of the Red River dike system. The ‘Ceramic Road’ is 6.5 km long, and it is one of the significant projects that were developed on the occasion of the Millennial Anniversary of Hanoi.
The artists that contributed to creating the mosaic in 2007 are mostly Vietnamese, but there were foreign embassies and cultural centers with new segments added later by Alexandro Mono Gonzalez from Chile and others. Thus, the mosaic contains different creative ideas and styles.
The mosaic shows different periods in the history of Vietnam: Phung Nguyen culture; dong Son culture; Ly Dynasty; Tran Dynasty; Le Dynasty and Nguyen Dynasty as well as modern artworks, paintings of Hanoi, and children’s drawings.
