During Cultural Revolution?[edit]

How well did they survive the Cultural Revolution? I know many statues were damaged and eventually repaired --these notable statues seem like they were likely candidates for vandalism. Any info? --Bobak (talk) 21:19, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

Found an answer in the NYT. --Bobak (talk) 21:21, 11 February 2009 (UTC)
