This is a representation of the footage taken near Tiananmen in 1989. Now known as the "tank man" a normal citizen protested for freedom on behalf of millions by blocking the way of a column of tanks. He stood for freedom and is an icon to many people around the world. It still makes the hairs on my neck stand up when I see it!

i love this peice of work, i have two suggestions that really arent vital but wold make this picture just a little better IMO the shadows of the man arent matching with the light source of the tanks at least it seems that way to me and the shadows need to be a liitle more blurry but other than that, awesome image author and best of luck to ya'!

Congratulations, Gino! I know a little about kanji (ideograms) and between Chinese and Japanese languages there are a lot of differences, but that one you wrote is the same: in Japanese is jiyû, freedom. Nice...
