Sculpture, Statues and things that don't move much.

A bust of Ho Chi Minh in the Vietnam History Museum. He was one of the iconic figures of the 20th Century. As is the problem with icons...fact and fiction tend to intermingle. For an intriguing and revealing biography have a look at William J. Duiker: "Ho Chi Minh: A Life". Amazon Review: "William J. Duiker, who served in Saigon's US embassy during the Vietnam War, spent 30 years delving into Vietnamese and European archives, as well as interviewing Minh's surviving colleagues, in order to write this definitive biography".
