The bronze statue lies 612 m east of Yellow Crane Tower and 338 m east of White Cloud Pavilion. With stone arches on its doorstep, this 8-m-tall statue exposes the audience to this patriot’s indignation toward the motherland’s broken territories. The general leaned against the saddle and reined his horse in while the horse itself was neighing and breaking into the enemies. The whole statue features 6.3 m net height and 16 ton weight (more than 14 ton bronze). This is a collaborative artwork of Fu Zhongwang, Chen Yucun, Sun Shaoqun and Xiang Jinguo—all teachers at Hubei Institute of Fine Arts with the help of Wuchang Shipyard No. 2 Foundry in terms of bronze casting. Behind the bronze statue stands a bluestone relief of 25.6 m length recapturing the scene in which Yue Fei’s army defeated Jin Wuzhu (Wanyan Zongbi). What’s more, the relief features Yue Fei’s handwriting Red All over the River: On Mounting the Yellow Crane Tower. Yet there is another inscription “Huan Wo He Shan (Restore Our Lost Territories).” The relief comes as a result of collaboration between Chen Renyu, Guo Xue and Li Jiang Hubei Institute of Fine Arts and Sichuan-based Pengxi County Xinghua Stone Carving Factory.
