The bronze statue shows Lee in his classic pose, shirtless in his upper body and holding his weapon, the Nunchaku. The sculpture was founded at the initiative of the Bruce Lee Club in Hong Kong, which also financed the sculpture. The club members, by the way, originally intended to build a museum for the esteemed star, but failed to raise enough money and a suitable place in the city for a museum. So the statue was finally placed in the Kowloon area, a place is formerly known as the Hong Kong Martial Arts Center.
The inspirational story of Bruce Lee begins in 1955, when he was 14 years old he lost in a street fight between gangs who he fought. He decided to dedicate his life studying Kung Fu, and learned at the Hong Kong Martial Arts Center. His decision took an interesting turn when instead of being a gang member, he decided to act in movies about Chinese martial arts. From there he shot up and became an international movie star, when in a series of box office hits in the 1970's, he revealed Kung Fu to the world.
He became famous with Kung Fu movies, Lee became a huge star in China, and later on across the globe. He got famous especially after the movie "Big Boss" in 1972, and in 1973 "Dragon," "Fist of Fury," and "Return of the Dragon." These movies got him international fame and respect in the history of cinema and the movie industry.
