A Taiwanese artist has created giant inflatables of a tank and “Tank Man” — the lone protester who stood in front of a convoy of tanks on Beijing’s Tiananmen Square — to mark 30 years since China’s bloody crackdown on the pro-democracy movement. The photograph of a man in a white shirt standing in the path of the tanks has become one of the most recognized images of the 20th century, and a symbol of peaceful protest.

The balloons are on display in the Taiwanese capital Taipei, by the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall, one of the country’s most famous landmarks.
