|The Liberation Monument (解放碑)|
The Liberation Monument (解放碑)– Yes, that piteous little thing in the center – the Liberation Monument used to be the great landmark of Chongqing. Is the towering building on the left purposely trying to mock and humiliate it?

|Controversial Nude Sculpture|
Controversial Nude Sculpture – On Chongqing's first Yangtze Bridge, the four nude sculptures, "Spring," "Summer," "Autumn" and "Winter" sparked a big controversy that embroiled the entire city, even the country, in the early 1980s (I participated in the debate). The artists eventually yielded to public pressure and added a sheer veil for each figure. The one in this photo is "Spring." (It apparently has been moved because the bridge's width is now doubled.)
