Junne, I don't know for sure, but at http://www.virtourist.com/asia/vietnam/hue/09.htm it is said "that these urns were cast between 1835 and 1837, and that each of the urns represents a different Nguyen king. The are also decorated with typical Vietnamese motifs (the sun, the moon, mountains, rivers and landscapes)".
Since in that period a Vietnamese king Minh Mang was in charge I am inclined to think that these Dynastic Urns were made by the Vietnamese.

did they use chinese characters in ancient vietnam? it never occurred to me that their present alphabet must be modern and most probably they used something else before.

There are a lot of Vietnamese art treasures located at the Vietnam Meditation Center off Chijuajua Canyon Road off S-79 between Vail Lake and Warner Springs, California. One is a 33-foot reclining Buddha. I have pictures...go to http://picasaweb.google.com/jpankey and look through the albums. You'll see them.

Wildspirit, I visited the Picasa site, but you have so many albums! In which album did you put the Buddha photos?
