It seems there is a copy in Windhoek, too...?
As a matter of fact the Statue is located in Swakopmund on the coast of northwestern Namibia, 280 km west of Windhoek, Namibia's capital.
One of the finest colonial buildings in Swakopmund is the Hohenzollern Building, on the corner of Libertina Amathila Avenue and Tobias Hainyeko Street. The most obvious feature, on the roof above the front door, is the statue of a kneeling Atlas holding up a globe of the world. In 1988 the original cement figure had to be replaced with the present plaster-of-Paris version.
