A 1.8 meter-tall bronze statue of late pop star Michael Jackson, dressed like a solider with bandoliers strapped across his chest, was revealed in Zhengzhou, the capital city of Central China’s Henan Province, on Saturday.
The statue, modeled after the one that appeared on the idol’s 1995 album History, was installed in front of a shopping mall by the superstar’s Chinese fans to commemorate the 10th anniversary of his death, which falls on June 25.
Although Jackson never performed in the Chinese mainland, his fame as the “King of Pop” remains strong to this day. In the build up to the 10th anniversary of his death, Chinese fans have been doing their all to show their love for the idol, erecting statues, holding memorial activities and taking part in events with fans around the globe.
