9/50.- Hue, the Nine Dynastic Urns


Each of the Nine Dynastic Urns has a different name. Although they all look equal, each has a unique form. They were cast between 1835 and 1837. They weight from 50,000 ounces to almost 100,000 ounces (1,600-2,600 Kg).

Each of the urns represents a different Nguyen king. The urns are decorated with typical Vietnamese motifs (the sun, the moon, mountains, rivers and landscapes). The names of the urns are Cao, Nhan, Chuong, Anh, Nghi, Than, Tuyen, Du, and Huyen.
