There is Mt. Soputan and Manado aerial view behind:





Pics are taken from panoramio

What talk ..
The statue is funny
and but impressive is the fact of being a predominantly Islamic country

Apa talk ..
Patung adalah lucu
dan mengesankan tetapi adalah sebuah fakta yang mayoritas negara Islam

Haha, your Indonesian language is quite funny (a lil bit too formal), must be not an Indonesian, but thx for trying using bahasa Indonesia... Let me try using Indonesian language according to your comment:
"Apa yang dapat dikatakan, patungnya lucu , tetapi yang mengesankan adalah bahwa patung tersebut terletak di negara yang mayoritas penduduknya Muslim "

For info, that statue is located in Manado, North Sulawesi, one of few cities and one of few provinces in Indonesia which is predominantly Christian, not Islam. North Sulawesi itself has about 70-80% of Christian population, contrast to the country which is about 80%(+) Muslim.

Oh yah, one clarification, Indonesia is a country with most Muslim population in d world, but not an Islamic country by the way
