The Jean Sibelius Monument


Hat Tip To James.

It is a Jean Sibelius morning.

First this….

…now this.

The Jean Sibelius Monument represents the series of more than 600 hollow steelpipes joined together in a wave like pattern. The work is made unique by its spatial diversity,allowing the viewer to enter it, and the echoes and sounds generated by the structure. Viewed from further away, its form blends in with the woods and rugged rocks. The purpose of the artist was to create a visual expression of the Sibelius music. The Jean Sibelius monument weighs 24 tons and measures 8.5 x10.5 x 8.5 meters.
