Cao Chongen was given the honor to sculpt Bruce Lee’s statue. The sculpture, commission by the Bruce Lee Club of Hong Kong, is appropriately on the Avenue of Stars in Hong Kong, China. The Avenue of Stars is dedicated to the Chinese cinema. Bruce Lee was voted the "Star of the 20th century" during the 2005 Hong Kong Film ceremony. He deserves a place of honor on the walkway in Kowloon.
The bronze statue which weighs 600 kilograms was carefully moved from Cao Chongen’s studio in Guangzhou, China to Hong Kong. The master’s artistic tribute to Bruce Lee is 2.5 meters high. On the base are the simple, but true, engraved words, “Star of the Century: Bruce Lee.”
Thanks to the Bruce Lee Club, Cao Chongen was awarded the commission to sculpt the statue for the martial arts’ legend. Thanks to them, Bruce Lee has a well deserved place on the Avenue of Stars with his peers.
The Avenue of Stars is on the Kowloon waterfront. It is only a step away from the Star Ferry pier. Stop by and pay tribute to Bruce Lee and the other great legends of the Chinese Cinema. After viewing the Avenue of Stars, take a moment and enjoy one of the world’s most recognized harbors. The awesome skyline of Hong Kong Island lay across Victoria Harbor.
