The work "Homage to Sibelius" is a small-scale model of the Sibelius Monument by the same artist inaugurated in Töölö, Helsinki (Finland) in 1967. As the last and definitive model, it is the one from which measurements were taken for the final work. Built in homage to the composer Jean Sibelius (1865-1957), the monument in Helsinki is also made of stainless steel, but measures 8,5 x 10,5 x 6,05 meters.
