 The event is also taking place as part of a cultural promotion project initiated by the Peruvian Foreign Ministry entitled "Torito de Pucará: Ambassador of the Peruvian Highlands".

At the exhibition, local artists Le Huy and Tran Anh Tuan are also introducing their versions of toritos by using the techniques of traditional Vietnamese painting.

VOV quoted the saying of Peru’s Ambassador to Vietnam Augusto Morelli Salgado at the opening ceremony that the bull art works by two talented artists Le Huy and Tran Anh Tuan are strongly symbolic of the ties between the two countries.

Within the framework of the exhibition, a free public torito painting session called “Make your own amule” will also be held on September 23 - 24./.
