The Monument was the result of a two staged competition, which was arranged for a memorial to the composer Jean Sibelius (1865-1957). The second stage was won by the sculptor Eila Hiltunen´s (1922-2003) entry Passio Musicae.

The Sibelius Monument is unique by its diversity. It allows the viewer to enter it and the echoes and sounds generated by the structure. A smaller version of the monument is located at the Unesco headquarters in Paris.
