What is Ja's iconic structure?

THE EDITOR, Sir:

It was an absolute joy to have watched the football World Cup Finals between Germany and Argentina. It was also an absolute joy that the international TV crew had, from time to time, highlighted one of Brazil's points of interest, the Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer), which I feel is one of most breathtaking scenes in the world.

We can say that when we think of England, in general, the Big Ben clock tower comes to mind. When we think of France, we think of the Eiffel Tower. And the list goes on.

But what about Jamaica? Dunn's River Falls? Perhaps it is not as spectacular as the ones we all know and love abroad.

Jamaica should have a more noticeable and iconic landmark, like the 'Redemption Song' statue of two slaves located at Emancipation Park. This will give us favourable overseas recognition.
