To celebrate the great warrior Guan Yu (162-219), now assimilated as the god of war, China has unveiled a massive and impressive statue of 1,320 tons, built in the city of Jingzhou in the Hubei province. Measuring 58 meters high, this imposing statue pays tribute to  Guan Yu , a real character from the end of the Han Dynasty, early deified, whose life was told in The Romance of Three Kingdoms , written by Luo Guan Zhong between 1279 and 1368, and which is considered as one of the four greatest classic novels of China.
