Photographer's Note

This enormous monument that honours Jean Sibelius, the late Romantic Finnish composer, consists of hundreds of steel pipes that are arranged vertically in a wave pattern. Most photos show it in its park setting in Toolo from that perspective.
I was more impressed by this work of abstract art when I looked at it from underneath, seeing the jagged edges of some of the pipes that soar skyward. Seen from this perspective, I had more sense of the spirit of Finlandia and of Finland itself.
