This monument has 4 main poles with 3.05 meters height fro the 2 front poles, and 4,4 meters height fro the two in the back.

In 1990, a replica of the monument was made with a size of 5 times larger. A dome to cover the original monument was also built to protect it from bad weather that will ruin the true shape of the pole.
