Centenary of Birth of Deng Xiaoping to Be Commemorated

Art works featuring Deng Xiaoping's early life as a middle school student, his work-cum-study experience in France and his later life are being made to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of the late senior leader of China.


The works include a bronze sculpture, a bust and a white marble relief sculpture of six pictures depicting Deng at birth, studying at a middle school in his hometown and leading local residents in resisting purchase of made-in-Japan commodities, said the manager surnamed Wang, of the Shenlong Art Science and Technology Company in Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan Province.


Wang said the artistic works were all designed by Yan Yongming, a well-known sculptor from Deng's home province of Sichuan. Both the bronze sculptures and the bust were finished.


The bronze sculpture, 2.5 meters tall, is made of 500 kg of bronze based on Deng's enlarged photo taken in France. Deng's bust depicting him in old age is 1.2 meters tall and is made of 300 kg of bronze.


The relief sculpture, which was in production, would cover an area of 84 square meters and be the largest of its kind depicting the late leader in the country, noted Wang.


The works will be placed in the Guang'an Middle School where Deng used to stay from 1918 to 1919.
