This statue is right on the highway. If you blink you definitely miss it. No fee to see or park. Very solidarity, be careful. Must do during the day.

To be a monument, this place seem to be abandoned, the surroundings need to be more clean, it also needs a parking spot so people can access the monument in a better way. Not a tourist destination at all.
