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 Hong Kong Bruce Lee Club raised money for a statue to be erected after pleas to the government to honour his legacy. Hew Kuan-yau, a member of the Bruce Lee Fan Club Committee, said, “We want the people to know about the legend of Bruce Lee.” / Image: via hongkong-airport-transfer.com

The statue was unveiled by Bruce Lee’s brother Robert Lee on 27 November 2005, celebrating what would have been Bruce’s 65th birthday.
