AboutThis immense statue was erected to symbolize the contribution of youthful courage in the development of the country. A bare-bodied young man is depicted holding a saucer containing an eternal flame up over his head. The flame represents the eternal spirit of youth, while the figure's animated expression captures the enthusiasm of youth. The monument stands on a two-meter pedestal in the center of a pond surrounded by small flowering trees. It was created by a team of artists headed by M. Pamuncak and was donated by Pertamina, the state oil company.
