Crowdfunded New Lady Liberty

A new Lady Liberty has emerged in Hong Kong.

Arising from a crowdfunding campaign that raised HK$200,000 ($25,500) in six hours, this 3D printed statue is the face of democracy protests.

The Economist notes that the statue draws on the tradition from Tiananmen Square in 1989 where the protesters erected a statue made from foam, metal and papier-mâché called the “Goddess of Democracy.”

Like the Trump balloon, Lady Liberty has been moved around protest sites in Hong Kong, not an easy task as it weighs 120 kilograms.

The statue is now in a gallery space above a cafe in Kowloon in an show titled “We Are Not____Exhibition.”
