tran hung dao - trần Hưng Đạo statue - wrapped - vietnam

Wrapped statue (Cẩm Phả, Vietnam)

Probably a statue of Trần Hưng Đạo (aka Hưng Đạo Vương or "King Hung Dao").­ He's a famous general of the Tran dynasty in 13th century Vietnam because he repeatedly beat back the Mongol invasions by Kublai Khan.­ (thanks to Tran Loc for this information)

Reminiscent of Christo's work? (Christo's famous art consists in wrapping-up large things)

Cẩm Phả District, Quang Ninh, Vietnam
