A 9.5 meter bronze statue of Confucius that was once located in front of the north entrance of the recently refurbished National Muesum of China, has been moved to a less conspicuos position in a "sculpture garden" by the west entrance of the museum. According to officials with the National Museum, the statue was always intended to be placed in the courtyard and, despite an official unveiling ceremony in January this year, was only "temporarily" placed by the north gate as they awaited completion of the sculpture garden.
