Huhtamo Kari - Monument to M.A. Castrén (1986)

The monument to M.A. Castrén is located on the outer wall next to the main entrance to the library. The work is based on a sketch by Alvar Aalto. The final implementation is by Kari Huhtamo, who added his signature clear steel arches and balls to the work. The sculpture is made mainly of bronze and depicts the travels to Lapland and the Kola Peninsula by M.A. Castrén (1813–1852), a pioneer in Finno-Ugric studies.
