The giant property developer PT Alam Sutera Realty (ASR) has committed to provide up to Rp 450 billion (US$41.67 million) in fresh money to continue the construction of Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK), Indonesia’s tallest statue and a new cultural icon for Bali. The commitment ended a 16-years hiatus that saw the development of the statue and its surrounding cultural park paralyzed by a regime change, a nationwide financial crisis, as well as an internal turf war involving an influential figure inside the managing company and foundation tasked with overseeing the project.
“PT Alam Sutera Realty will provide the funds required to finish the construction of the statue. Rp 300 billion will be allocated for the statue, while the remaining Rp 150 billion will be used to improve infrastructure in the 60-hectare site of GWK cultural park, including beautification of the parks, installing high-powered lamps to enable visitors to enjoy the spectacle at nighttime, and other things,” Harjanto Tirtohadiguno, the founder of ASR, also tapped to head the GWK managing company PT Garuda Adhimatra Indonesia (GAIN), said in a press conference on Thursday. In its final form, the GWK statue will be 75 meters (m) tall with a wingspan of 64m. The statue will stand on a lofty pedestal that will bring the total height of the monument to 126m, some 30m taller than the Statue of Liberty in the US. The outer skin of the statue measures 22,000 square meters and its volume is eleven times that of the Statue of Liberty.
