A Taiwanese artist has created a giant inflatable depiction of the iconic “tank man” scene to mark 30 years since China’s bloody crackdown on pro-democracy protests.
The photo of a man standing in front of a tank in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square became one of the most famous photos of the 20th Century.
The balloons are on show by the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall in Taipei.
Reporting of the crackdown is heavily censored in China.
The photo of a man in a white shirt – who has never been officially identified – standing in front of a convoy of tanks has become a symbol of peaceful resistance across the world.
