The opening space (also called the solemn space) symbolizes the pistil of the white lotus, the center is the bronze statue of President Ho Chi Minh. Behind the statue are the symbol of the sun and the image of the banyan tree symbolizes the light and longevity of the Vietnamese people. I really like this work, not only because of its monumental scale but also by its ethnicity and artistry, every detail is sculpted very sophisticatedly and meticulous.
