Description

Marshal He Long was a military leader during China’s first revolution for democracy. In the late 1920’s, he joined the communist party and Mao Zedong’s revolution. He was a hero of that revolution, as the forces under his command in the "long march" were the only to increase in number, rather than diminish. Later, during Mao’s Cultural Revolution, he was branded as an anti-party element and died in prison from diabetes, beatings and starvation.

Marshal He Long was a military leader during China’s first revolution for democracy. In the late 1920’s, he joined the communist party and Mao Zedong’s revolution. He was a hero of that revolution, as the forces under his command in the "long march" were the only to increase in number, rather than diminish. Later, during Mao’s Cultural Revolution, he was branded as an anti-party element and died in prison from diabetes, beatings and starvation.
Pan He made the original larger sculpture of the Marshall, in 1985, which included a horse, as he is usually depicted. The original was made for He Long's hometown, in Hunan Province (pictures of the original are shown on the hyperlinked page). To make up for the mistreatment of her husband, who was a true hero of the revolution, the Chinese government got together with He Long's wife to have a memorial made of him. Pan He agreed to make it, but he wanted the Marshall in his battle gown and the horse made small so as not to take the eye away from He Long, himself. The wife ultimately agreed. In this smaller, bronze version is an opportunity to display one of Pan He's well-known works, in your home. His body is meant to echo the rock walls of the mountains behind the original monument and also to add to his substance as a leader.
