The "ccp virus" sculpture by artist and sculptor Chen Weiming at Liberty Sculpture Park in the Mojave desert town of Yermo, California.
Located off Interstate-15 freeway between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, the park and sculptures are the creation of Chinese-born New Zealand artist and sculptor Chen Weiming, who unveiled "Tank Man" two years ago on the 30th anniversary of the 1989 pro-democracy movement in Beijing's Tiananmen Square, and where new pieces such as Chen's latest coronavirus sculpture "ccp virus" are displayed.
In 2008, Chen created the 6.4-meter replica Goddess of Democracy statue for the Chinese University of Hong Kong and was comissioned by the New Zealand government in 1991 to create a 3-meter bronze statue of Edmund Hillary.
