The monument [called the Tower of Heroes] is a 51-meter tall construction with prisms of resin glass - RIA Novosti.

Names of people who were killed in fights with the Red Army in February 1921, ruled the anti-Soviet mutiny in 1924, perished in wars in Abkhazia in 1992-1993 and conflict in South Ossetia in August 2008 are engraved in prisms - about 4000 names.

"On the monument, alongside with names, written in gold names, there are blank spaces. I dream these will never be filled... We must do everything do let new names be added. But we must be ready to put the uniform on and... in the crucial moment take arms... Everyone must be ready to perish on own land to let our names fill in the blank spaces of the monument. It's a genetic code of our country and it's the experience of our history. It's the main guarantee of our future", Saakashvili said at the opening ceremony.

The author of the monument is a Spanish designer Alberto Domingo Cabo.
