Overview

Bronze bell – a ship’s or soul bell that starts ringing by itself in a strong wind. With the movement of its cross-shaped pendulum in a storm, it seems a bring a message from the sea – a bell tower in a way … symbolically. The incline of the monument has a visual and emotional impact and should also call to mind the last moments of the ship. Tender details are also added to the bronze bell – four child faces on each of the main points of the compass.

The memorial sculpture is just a basic metal thing, nothing really special but the meaning of it is really strong. Nice rocky coastline!

This is the Memorial to remember children who died at the Estonia catastrophe. The ship went from Estonia to the sea and there was beginning a storm and all victims died in the cold water.

Just about everybody I've met in the 10 years I've been in Estonia knew someone who died in the disaster. Every sizeable town and village has an 'Estonia' ferry memorial. This one, on the closest land location to where the ship sank, is to the...More

I worked in shipping and I remember the sinking of the Estonia so when we found ourselves here on the island we felt drawn to the memorial. It is very unusual but, when you read the thinking behind its design it all makes sense. Most...More
