Lot description
"Fighting for Freedom" (2008) is a sublime bronze sculpture in the round by Chinese Contemporary artist Huang Gang. The artist depicts a Red Guard female solider here as a ballet dancer painted a glossy, vivid red, a visual reference to Communist China. The elegant pose she strikes makes one nearly miss the gun she brazenly holds in one hand. This piece elegantly and powerfully speaks to the women of modern-day China, who want to be both feminine yet also bold and liberated. This stunning bronze measures 28.75 x 16.92 x 22.83 in. (73 x 43 x 58 cm), is edition of 27 of 48 and is in perfect condition.
