Please sculpture

Please Sculpture, Hong Kong, public art

Public Art: Please sculpture

Sculptor: © VAN Lau

Description: An enormous bronze sculpture of hands clasped together. The sculpture protrays the common Chinese guesture of greeting. China has long been known as the " Nation of Courtesy" and "Please" so this sculpture could be interpreted as a friendly reminder to people to be courteous to one another, especially in this busy shopping district. It could also, to some, be interpreted as a response to the 1989  Tiananmen Square protests, commonly known as the June Fourth Incident (just like the Flying Frenchman sculpture).

Date Unveiled: 1989

Funded by: Radio Television Hong Kong and Rotary Club of Kowloon West

Location: The Please statue is found on the footpath outside the entrance to Kowloon Park from the Park Lane Shoppers Boulevard, Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong.
