Reportedly a 300 million RMB head statue of Mao Zedong is being constructed in his home province of Hunan. This statue depict the early years of Mao as a young man in 1925. The total height of the statue is 32m, with a base height of 15m and the head height of 17m. Many netizens question the usefulness of building a huge statue when the money could be better spent elsewhere.

300 million? Isn’t it a little too much~
If Chairman Mao is still alive, he probably wouldn’t approve.
Haha, I’ll take a look, not going to comment, because I’m afraid of being pursued across state lines.
Can somebody tell me, what is the practical use of spending so much tax payer’s money building this kind of thing.
Spending huge sums constructing a statue, is it meaningful? Such a massive formalist project, at best it is to paint a good face for the officials, as to gain some so called “political achievements”. Instead invest [money] it toward the building of the national economy in order to do something practical for the common people! If there are really no projects then just build roads, I don’t believe the roads in Hunan are all modernized!
Today we are still building for his kind of person? The sorrow of humanity!
What is the point of making this…waste of money…
Support great man.
Support! Forever remember Chairman Mao’s thought.
Although we respect and love our founding father, but isn’t this a waste of money and people’s labor? Is it that some people once again pocketed the wealth for themselves! China always pursue things in vanity, I think even if our great leader knew about this matter, he will certainly be angry!
Classic case of the cult of personality..
I’m afraid of saying anything.
Everybody work hard, maybe many years from now, your head sculpture will also be like this.
Even America have sculptures of great persons, why can’t China have them? Sore mentality!
Comments on Mop:
So stupid, have so much excess money building a head sculpture, why not use it to aid the disaster areas.
Imitating the Sphinx?
Hairstyle look like Beethoven’s O(∩_∩)O haha~
Chairman Mao was after all a great man, what is the big deal about spending 300 million constructing a head sculpture, why his successors waste more than 3 billion every year. Where are their contribution? How much do they worth?
Hunan people are the highest grade of SB.
Motherfucker, have so much money why not build some houses for poor people to live instead.
300 million!? How much of it will be corrupted away~
Remembrance of Chairman Mao is good, but using money off the working people is not good.
I think it is worth it.
