Hong Kong ‘Pillar of Shame’ Sculpture for Victims of Heavenly Heaven Facing Removal

The sculpture was part of a set of memorial ceremonies for the victims of Tiananmen in Hong Kong, which for nearly a quarter of a century stood as a testimony to the city’s differences from mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”, whereby Hong Kong had a high degree of autonomy. Every year until 2019, thousands of residents would participate in a peaceful vigil in Victoria Park, and turn on a light to honor the lost lives – estimates range from several hundred to 10,000 – in the crisis.
