There are many equatorial monuments around the world, in many countries that pass by the imaginary equator line. There is one monument built in West Borneo, in the city of Pontianak. It is named "Tugu Katulistiwa" or Equator Monument in English. This monument was first built by a Dutch geographer in 1928 and completed in 1930. In 1938 was rebuilt by architect Silaban but still maintaining its original monument still visible in the interior, then it was finally renovated in 1990 and completed in 1991. However equator line is not fixed, now the monument is not on the equator anymore. It has moved slightly southwards. This model template was designed by Nanda Blank, this monument is in his city he lives. This monument is a landmark of Pontianak, and Nanda hopes this model will be kind a remembrance of home for the people of Pontianak who lived outside the island or abroad. This model height is 27 cm, the template contains 5 pages and 2 pages of assembly instructions.
