Obama statue in Taman Menteng
The Barack Obama statue has soon become a controversial addition to the city of Jakarta after it was publicly revealed late 2009. The funders of the statue, mostly wealthy residents of the up-class Menteng area in central Jakarta, just wanted to express their happiness with the fact that the little boy Barry has become president Obama of the United States decades later. While others say he has done nothing for Indonesia and thus placing a statue of him in a public space is not appropriate.
