The thirteen sculptural groups and relieves of the monument, depict the history and culture of Latvia, the symbols that they include tell a story of the bravery of its people, their cultural aesthetics and the power of their ethical sources. The Freedom Monument celebrates its 80th birthday this year – it was unveiled in November 18, 1935.
The audio-visual performance emphasizes and celebrates the structural groups thus finding the feeling of being at home in patriotism and showing the monument in a new light. The performance includes the song “Trīs zvaigznes” (“Three Stars”) by Jānis Lūsēns and Māra Zālīte.
