Irian Jaya Liberation Monument

The Irian Jaya Liberation Monument is another one of those over-the-top cold-war-era inspired revolutionary monuments scattered around Jakarta. The muscular man, breaking the chains of oppression, is meant to symbolize the 1963 liberation of Irian Jaya (New Guinea) from the Dutch. But the statue could also be of the Incredible Hulk of course!
