Photographer's Note

This 100-foot monument is found in Central Jakarta. The imposing and fearsome figure is part of a series of monuments erected by the Soekarno regime. The man is supposed to represent the strength, ferocity, and triumph of the comman man. There is some interesting history behind the subtle socialist undertones of many of the Soekarno monuments, which I haven't been able to sort out yet.
