Presiding over the central square in Chengdu, the capital of China’s Sichuan province, is a 30-meter white-marble statue of late Chairman Mao Zedong, built during the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976). Chengdu is one of the few cities where such statues of Mao, which were once visible throughout the country, remain. A China Daily reporter offers a rich description of the central square and surrounding area that implicitly renders remarkable the preservation of this historical icon in the face of dramatic cultural change.
