Show: Miss Saigon
Set Designer: John Napier
Broadway, 1991
21 feet tall

Sculpted in styrofoam and cast in Monzini,
this massive sculpture of HO CHI MINH
is based on extensive research from
newspaper archives to portray the man in
middle-age. The pose was dictated by
Napier's set model and blueprint. Because
of its height and on-stage movement, this
immense statue requires a heavily
reinforced steel armature. HO CHI MINH
was constructed in two pieces to facilitate
trucking and loading into the theatre.
