African Renaissance Monument

A North Korean company has emerged as the chief provider of cheap statues across Africa and Asia. 

Across 21st-century Africa, nations celebrate their milestone independence anniversaries and attendant pride the way nations always have: with monuments. In 2002, Namibia opened Heroes’ Acre, with a statue resembling activist president Sam Nujoma; Benin unveiled a statue of King Béhanzin, who defied the French in the 1890s; in Botswana the Three Dikgosi Monument (2005) casts tribal leaders important in the country’s independence movement in bronze.
