Description +-

When facing authoritarian government, the people of Hong Kong fought back with Molotov cocktail bombs to vanguard freedom and democracy.

The sculpture preserves the fighting spirit and determination for freedom in the way of civil disobedience like a time capsule.

The process of the sculpture making involves rapid cooling by water when the resin sculpture reaches about 100°C while curing, trapping the escaping air bubble within creating an unique powerful explosive look.
