Bruce Lee statue unveiled in Hong Kong

It's about time Bruce Lee was honoured. In conjuction with his 65th birthday, a bronze statue was unveiled today at the Avenue of Stars in Tsim Sha Tsui. Guests included Lee's younger brother, Robert.

Originally an idea by Vesilin Gatalo, a Bosnian ethnic Croat, he wanted to erect a statue in Mostar. He says Lee is a 'symbol the whole community could rally behind; one of "loyalty, friendship, skill, and justice." It was unveiled just 24 hours before Hong Kong.
