Ly Tu Trong, a 16 year old, Thailand-born,
Vietnamese revolutionary, who rebelled against French colonial occupation
and was executed for it by the French on 21 November 1931, a month short of
his 17th birthday. He is today
revered as a revolutionary martyr, with a street named after him in Saigon
and this statue carved in the typical art style of socialist realism, in a
small roadside public park to the south of West Lake in Hanoi.
