Over the years there has been damage to the pedestal and statue of Confucius in the Chinese Cultural Garden in Cleveland. A new granite pedestal and larger-than-life statue of Confucius were installed on Friday October 3, 2014.
Thank you to Elizabeth Miller of the Confucius Institute at Cleveland State University for sharing these historic photos from the pedestal and statue placement.
First, the pedestal was lifted, transported and placed.
Then the Confucius statue was transported and placed.
If you would like to donate to the Chinese Cultural Garden's restoration, please contact them directly at http://culturalgardens.org/federation-contact-information.aspx. The Chinese Cultural Garden is a 501c3 non-profit organization.
