The May Fourth Square with its bright red spiral sculpture is a familiar landmark in the heart of Qingdao. As it was a short walk from our hotel, we took a quick evening walk before dinner. The place was tranquil, but due to the cold winds, we left the square quite quickly.

Just another modern piece of art meant to have a tie into a historic event. However, the art does not make the connection between the art and the history suppose to represent. Obviously, some in the government liked it.

Historically important, the sculpture is the rising will of the Chinese coming out of a broken heart from the unfulfilled promise by the English that they would come to the aid of the Chinese suffering occupation by the Japanese in an agreement made during World War I.
