ABOUT THE ART
This half-scale bust captures the martial-arts legend's portrait just in time to celebrate what would've been Bruce Lee's 80th birthday. The bust measures approximately 10 inches tall atop a dragon pillar. Cast in resin and featuring detailed sculpting and paint applications, it's limited to only 1,000 pieces and includes a hand-numbered certificate of authenticity.
Bruce Lee was a Chinese-American martial artist, actor, director, martial arts instructor and philosopher. He was the founder of Jeet Kune Do, a hybrid martial arts philosophy drawing from different combat disciplines that is often credited with paving the way for modern mixed martial arts (MMA).
Lee is considered by commentators, critics, media, and other martial artists to be the most influential martial artist of all time and a pop culture icon of the 20th century, who bridged the gap between East and West. He is credited with helping to change the way Asians were presented in American films.
