The monument depicts the balcony of the historical Endla Theatre in the original size. The authors K. Eelma, M. Aas and M. Mutso have chosen the sturdy granite as the material. One of the most important aims of the monument was to make the message or the text of the manifest visible. The manifest of independence is written on the wall of the balcony in the old and modern language, and Braille. "Manifesto to the Peoples of Estonia" was publicly read out for the first time on February 23, 1918 from the balcony of the Endla Theatre and Society House which stood where Pärnu Hotel is today.
