"The last days of Mr. Szeto Wah" (The last days of Mr. Szeto Wah). The fiberglass relief sculpture, 2.4 meters high and 1.2 meters wide, was created in 2011.

The whole work is divided into three levels: the first level is Mr. Situ Hua and the Hong Kong affiliates. Mr. Situ Hua holds the microphone in one hand and squeezes his fist on his knees. He sits firmly in a wheelchair. A partial scene of protesting with a fist presented by a character. The second level is the "Goddess of Democracy" and "Relief of the Tiananmen Square Massacre on June 4th". The center of the picture is the statue of the Goddess of Democracy holding a torch. On the left is the martial law soldier who suppressed students, and on the right is the banner with the word "June 4th". The third level is the clock tower at Tongluowan Plaza in Hong Kong. The pointer is placed at the moment Mr. Situ Hua sat in front of the clock tower at 12:15. It records the last moment of Mr. Situ Hua’s painstaking effort for democracy.

Szeto Wah (1931-2011), known as Uncle Hua. Before late for the Hong Kong Democratic Party whip, and " the Alliance " Chairman, has been hailed Hong Kong democrats patriarch and spiritual leader.

After the June 4th Incident in 1989, the CCP government bloodyly suppressed the pro-democracy movement and arrested student leaders and pro-democracy activists. In Hong Kong, Szeto Wah, who founded the Alliance launched a code-named " Operation Yellowbird " (OperationSiskin / Operation Yellow Bird) of the rescue operation, rescue the Baiyu bit is wanted by the CCP persecution of student leaders and other pro-democracy activists Related parties fled from mainland China. He described the "June 4th Incident" as the darkest time in human history. It also made him see the true face of the Chinese Communist Party. He used tanks and machine guns to treat unarmed students and people. "The core of the Chinese Communist Party is the power first. It treats all infringements. People, kill them," he also claimed that his ultimate goal is to end the one-party dictatorship and build a democratic China.

Mr. Situ Hua was also the soul of the June 4th mourning activities such as the "Victoria Park June 4th Candlelight Gala " in Hong Kong. Until his death, he insisted on "Don't forget June 4th" and " Rehabilitate June 4th ", hoping that the Chinese nation will embark on a broad road.

Before the events commemorating the 21st anniversary of June 4th in Hong Kong in 2010, the Hong Kong government ordered the confiscation of June 4th sculptures and refused entry to Mr. Chen Weiming. On the day of the June 4th event, Mr. Situ Hua appeared on the streets of Causeway Bay to give a speech while suffering from cancer. His expression was very serious. He said that the Hong Kong government confiscated June 4th sculptures, something that had never happened in 21 years. There was a great protest. Mr. Situ Hua's resolute and fearless figure and words and deeds in the fight for Chinese democracy brought shock and deep impression to the sculptor. In order to mourn him, Chen Weiming selected a representative picture of Mr. Situ Hua in a wheelchair in front of the June 4th statue. He said that Uncle Hua was a warrior who was fighting for China’s democracy and safeguarding Hong Kong’s freedom. We should be comrades, we are his followers, he left like this, we always have to leave something for him. Situ Hua’s greatest contribution is that he made people remember June 4th. In 2010, when we held the commemoration of the 21st anniversary of the Tiananmen Massacre in Hong Kong from all walks of life, we saw the participation of the younger generations of the post-90s and post-80s generations. This is exactly the educational role played by Situ Huawei in Hong Kong society. Compared with the mainland authorities using fake history to educate the next generation, and because of such "fake", no one in mainland China knows what happened 20 years after the June 4th Incident. There is a very big contrast between the two. "Some heroes give people a radiant feeling, but Uncle Hua is another typical example of humility and approachability. I think that a true educator is not radiant on the surface, but really plays a big role in the heart. "​
