The Hong Kong memorial was built on behalf of Bruce Lee, who died on 20 July 1973 at the age of 32. A 2.5 metre bronze statue by artist Cao Chong-en was erected along the Avenue of Stars attraction near the waterfront at Tsim Sha Tsui. It shows a classic ‘ready to strike’ Bruce Lee pose, as seen in the 1972 movie Fist of Fury.
The statue was unveiled by Bruce Lee’s brother Robert Lee on 27 November 2005, celebrating what would have been Bruce’s 65th birthday.
