Sibelius Park in Helsinki Finland

In Sibelius Park, located in Helsinki Finland, you’ll find an usual statue. Named for famous Finnish musician Jean Sibelius, the abstract monument resembles a soundwave made of clusters of organ pipes. The jagged monument consists of over 600 steel pipes unevenly grouped at various heights with the highest pipe reaching over 27 feet in the air. The landmark was designed to embody the spirit of Sibelius’ music, but many argued that the statue did not directly honor the composer. A large bust of Sibelius was later added at the foot of the monument so that viewers won’t be confused.
