Goddess of Democracy

Goddess_of_democracy The Goddess of Democracy also known as the Goddess of Democracy and Freedom, the Spirit of Democracy, and the Goddess of Liberty, was a 10-meter-tall statue created during the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989.

The statue was constructed in only four days out of styrofoam and papier-mâché over a metal armature by students of the Central Academy of Fine Arts. The students decided to make the statue as large as possible so the government would be unable to dismantle it. The government would either have to destroy the statue — an action which would potentially fuel further criticism of its policies — or leave it standing
