The statue “Mother of Vietnam” is a symbol of Vietnamese Women’s Museum.

“Mother of Vietnam” depicts an image of a woman carrying her son on the shoulder. The right hand seems like pushing difficulties and troubles down at her feet in order to shield and protect the child.

Looking upwards, we could see a dome-shaped roof with unique design to take advantage of maximum sunlight and ensure light for the whole first floor but not too hot in the summer.
