Memorial to A. H. Tammsaare

This memorial, completed to mark the 100th birthday of beloved national author A. H. Tammsaare (1878-1940), is situated in Tammsaare park in central Tallinn. The writer is depicted in a pensive mood sitting on a bench. In choosing the location of the memorial, the authorities bore in mind that the New Market that once stood where the park is today was a favourite spot of the author's, where he loved to observe people. The memorial was designed by sculptor Jaak Soans and architect Rein Luup.
