Interesting enough statue about working together. Look for the bullet damage on the base from WW 2 - kind of makes it different. Nothing spectacular just a unique statue with a bit of history.

while walking in the city I saw this interesting statue from a cross the street. I knew I had to see up close so I crossed the street and was glad I did. Stunning work of art.

While walking around in the city center, I was attracted by this statue and taken some photos. You won't miss it and it is surrounded by busy shopping areas.

This square is unquestionably the center of Helsinki and you can feel that once you are there. One of the best departmental stores of Europe is just there too

Situated in the intersection of Aleksanterinkatu and Mannerheimintie, is a popular meeting place, while also being an icon of Helsinki. It hasn’t always been this easy for the iconic naked blacksmiths... In WW2 the base was damaged during a bombing, the anvil of a smith...More

Near the railway station this statue is hard to miss and well worth seeing - is in a busy area - the statue would not be something to travel to just to se it but if in the area it is well worth seeing.

Located close to the Stockmann Department Store, the monument represents honour and dignity with three men conveying hard work and labour. The statue is quite weathered but found almost right in the city centre.
