Bruce Lee Statue Vandalized

29 November 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

A life-size bronze statue of Bruce Lee erected in the Bosnian city Mostar was vandalized only hours after being unveiled on Saturday. The life-size figure - which captures Lee in a defensive stance armed with nunchuks - was erected as both a symbolic protest against ethnic division and to mark what would have been the martial arts hero's 65th birthday on Sunday. However, by the following morning, the nunchuk's chain and one of its handles were missing and the statue was surrounded by empty wine and beer bottles. A Mostar police official says, "We have received reports that the statue has been damaged. We are currently investigating the incident." Veljo Dojcinovic, the park's keeper, blames the damage on a group of teenagers: "I heard a loud bang but I was alone and I couldn't stop them. Police should have been more agile. They know that hooligans visit this park regularly." »

Bruce Lee Statue To Promote Ethnic Tolerance in Bosnia

Martial arts legend Bruce Lee is to be immortalized in the Bosnian city Mostar after officials decided to erect a statue of him as a symbolic protest against ethnic division. The Enter The Dragon icon was chosen to be the subject for the life-sized bronze statue because he is seen as a hero people of all backgrounds. Mostar was reduced to rubble during the fierce fighting which took place in the former Yugoslavia between 1992 and 1995 as Croats, Bosnians and Serbs struggled for control of the city. When the statue is finished next year it will take pride of place in a city center park. »
