The great civilizations of the past have used bronze as a creative art form. From the Greeks to the ancient Chinese, they both mastered the skill of crafting beautiful bronze sculptures. For centuries after, bronze has been used to preserve the image of important people. Bronze has always carried with it a symbol of remembrance. For example, “The Thinker” by August Rodin has imbedded itself in the minds of modern artist and serves as inspiration for the generations to come. This also includes the iconic sculpture of Greek titan Prometheus that overlooks the ice skating rink at Rockefeller Center in New York.
On June 15th, a 7’’ bronze installation of Bruce Lee made itself into the streets of Los Angeles’ Chinatown. This commemorates the 40th anniversary of his passing and the 75th anniversary of Chinatown. The statue depicts Bruce Lee in his prime, with great detail shown in the muscle of his upper torso. He is also holding pair of nunchucks with his right hand and underneath his arm. Standing in martial arts pose, this statue symbolizes his impact on both the city of Los Angeles and Hollywood. Passing away at the young age of 32, Lee left the world with popular movies like, “Enter the Dragon” but still remains the icon for martial arts all over the world.
