Bruce Lee Statue Unveiled in Los Angeles
Martial arts movie icon Bruce Lee has been immortalised in Los Angeles with a larger-than life bronze statue.
The seven-foot tribute, created by an artist in Guangzhou, China, was unveiled in Chinatown's historical Central Plaza on Saturday.
The statue was donated by the Bruce Lee Foundation, a non-profit organisation started up to honour the actor's legacy, ahead of the 40th anniversary of his death on 20 July.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the statue is not yet a permanent fixture - local business leaders are attempting to raise $150,000 to have it installed.
Lee died at the age of 32 in 1973.
