Patung Selamat Datang
Symbol of Jakarta.
It was built for welcoming athletes to do Asian Games IV (1962) at Jakarta, that's why the statue so friendly like saying: 'Hey welcome!' While bring flowers.
The tall of it from head to feet is 5 m,
From 'Hey hand' to feet is 7 m,
And 10 m from pool to the statue.
There was rules that mentioned to build a building not more than Monas Monument's tall, 132 m.
Btw, person that made it Henk Ngatung (1921-1991), an artist also vice governor DKI Jakarta (1960-64) and became governor at 64-65.
