The Farmer’s Statue is another one of those cold-war-era inspired revolutionary monuments. But of all the statues scattered around Jakarta, this is probably the most “communist”. A gift from the former Soviet Union in 1963, the statue shows a farmer facing forward to join the revolution while his wife bids him farewell. Oh the glorious sacrifices that must be made for the nation!
