Steel

June 1989

Location: Queen’s Drive Lawn, Streatham Campus
 


This large and strikingly powerful sculpture commemorates the tragic events in Tiananmen Square, Beijing on 3rd and 4th June 1989. It was anonymously erected overnight in 1989 by a group of students and every June wreaths are laid against it.

The warrior figure with its lance outstretched is the modern equivalent of Don Quixote who sought to redress wrongs however he perceived them, and at whatever odds.
