The statue is located near the port and near a lot of construction with the new rail going essentially directly underneath it. You’ll drive past if you’re heading north and really not worth actually stopping and risking your life to get closer...

I thought this sculpture a good representation of the industrial/commercial centre that is Douala. It is at an extremely busy roundabout, easy to see from the car window.

The idea was probably not bad at the beginning. Looking at that this junk of useless material cannot be clean, it is a potential microbes culture tool. It look like a plan to curse the entire town. God forbid. This is becoming a reference piece...More

This is just a statue, there is nothing to see. You just go here and see if you would like, but it is nothing special or impressive, in my opinion not even attractive.
