Interesting person and the statue is beautiful. I wouldn't say this is something you need to have in your bucketlist but it is nice to stop by if you are near. more »
Nice to see the place. Monument is nice.
This larger than life bronze statue of Aleksis Kivi Depicts him sitting in a chair leaning forward with his left knee crossed over his right knee. His right arm is bent at the elbow with the lower half of his right arm resting on his left thigh. His left arm is hanging over the back of the chair. He is wearing slacks, a shirt with a button open at the collar, and a coat. He has short hair and a well trimmed mustache and beard. The statue was created by Finnish sculptor Wäinö Aaltonen in 1939. "Aleksis Kivi, born Alexis Stenvall, (10 October 1834 – 31 December 1872) was a Finnish author who wrote the first significant novel in the Finnish language, Seven Brothers (Finnish title: Seitsemän veljestä). Although Kivi was among the very earliest authors of prose and lyrics in Finnish language, he is still considered one of the greatest of them all.
