What's so special about a statue of Mao in China! you will see them everywhere. Not as much as previously as they are gradually be taken down. This is one of the largest however and in no risk of being dismantled - he is in fact being repaired/restored. He is a man of mystery, shrouded in scaffolding and green mesh!

He stands in front of the Sichuan Science and Technology Museum and overlooks Tianfu Square in the centre of Chengdu.

Directions: Chengdu centre
