The exhibition is a space to popularise the image of the cat - the zodiac animal for the upcoming Lunar New Year.

The Cat is the fourth animal symbol in the 12-year cycle of the Vietnamese zodiac, taking place of the Rabbit in the Chinese zodiac and it’s believed to be vigilant, witty, quick-minded and ingenious.

Le Xuan Kieu, Director of Centre for Scientific and Cultural Activities Van Mieu- Quoc Tu Giam, said the event is expected to turn the premise into a space to inspire creativity among youngsters.

The exhibition will run through January 29 at Van Mieu- Quoc Tu Giam and at VICAS Art Studio from January 31 to February 28./.
