It's a marvellous sculpture and a grand exemplar of art for passers-by to admire and enjoy. It depicts the dignity of manual work, to fashion goods. The activity of the figures is striking.

This is an interesting statue and could be better located because where it is inthe small square surrounded by Stockman Department Store and some cafe's it gets lost. There is also little detail of its significance.

The Three Smiths Statue is a sculpture by Felix Nylund, situated in Helsinki in Three Smiths Square at the intersection of Aleksanterinkatu and Mannerheimintie. This realistic statue, unveiled in 1932, depicts three smiths hammering on an anvil. The smiths are naked.
