The monument was not that easy to find I seem to remember; but I was not really looking for it. It sort of sneaked up on me. It looks pretty funky in the snow!

The sculpture was created by artist, Eila Hiltunen in 1967 to honour Finland's most famous composer, Jean Sibelius.

The organ like cluster of pipes is said to represent the forest.

Address: Sibelius Park, Toolo
