The Guangzhou Liberation Memorial Statue on the Central Ring of Haizhu Square is a statue of Mao Zedong built by the Guangzhou People's Government in commemoration of the liberation of Guangzhou in 1959 by Yin Jichang during the 1969 Cultural Revolution. The statue is demolished by Pan He and Liang Mingcheng. In 1979, the statue of liberation in Guangzhou was redesigned and reconstructed as granite in commemoration of the liberation of Guangzhou in 1980. Rock sculpture base is 3.6 meters high, 4.3 meters long and 11.5 meters high, sitting north and facing south. The main body is a PLA soldier shoulder back millet bag, left barge shell gun waist, bullet belt, right hand rifle, left hand embrace bouquet, head up and chest, like a huge stone carving of a seal Qin on the front of the statue seat in Guangzhou, engraving the first Guangzhou Long Leaf Sword after liberation. The English inscription "Guangzhou Liberation Memorial on October 14, 1949" and the four corners of the inscription "All powers belong to the people" are inscribed respectively. Faced with the endless stream of people in Liberation Bridge every day, this remarkable statue awakens the people not to forget the righteousness of the liberation fighters who gave up their lives to throw their homes before the flag is flying today.
