The centrepiece of the monument is a 21 metre-tall granite obelisk. Atop of the obelisk stands a gilded bronze statue of a lady, holding out a laurel wreath as if placing it upon the head of the nation.(Not Shown)

At the foot of the obelisk are two (ungilded) bronze figures, representing those Luxembourgish soldiers that volunteered to serve for France during WW1; one lies at the base of the statue, having died in service of his country, whilst the other sits, mourning his dead compatriot.
