The dedication of the Bruce Lee monument in Mostar, Bosnia-Herzegovina, in November 2005 gained media attention from all over the world. It is perhaps not surprising, since this monument is something of an oddity. Instead of finding a common denominator for the croats and bosnians that populate the ethnically divided city of Mostar, the creators of the monument have used an external, and well-known, symbol in the kung-fu hero Bruce Lee.
