The statue has found its home on Jalan M.H. Thamrin and is of none other than the native Jakartan M.H. Thamrin himself. The seven-meter tall statue was made by Ketut Winata, the winner of a statue competition held by the Jakarta city administration in 2000. It took Ketut six months to build the statue, which cost US$214,000. Born in 1894, Thamrin became a member of the city council from 1919 to 1941 and the people’s council (Volksraad) from 1927 to 1941. He was a symbol of unity and champion of independence during his time. The 7-meter tall statue was erected after a 12-year delay.

Esta es una vista general de Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.

Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?

China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.

Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.
Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.

Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.

I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.

The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.

China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.
