Passio Musicae by Eila Hiltunen

A two-staged competition was arranged by the Sibelius society, founded in 1957, for a memorial to the composer. The second stage was taken by Eila Hiltunen's entry 'Passio Musicae'. The competition gained immense publicity; the conflict between the supporters of abstract and figurative art was in the air, but it was solved by adding Sibelius' bust to Hiltunen's work.

The work is made unique by its spatial diversity, allowing the viewer to enter it and generate various echoes and sounds.
