The monument to Party Founding was erected in October Juche 84 (1995) at Munsu Street, Taedonggang District with the height of 50 m to convey down the proud history of the Workers' Party of Korea composed of workers, farmers and intellectuals. The monument depicts the hammer, sickle and brush seized by a worker, a farmer and an intellectual. And the round belt means the single-hearted unity of the leader, Party and people.
The current Workers Party of Korea (WPK), the only legal party in the DPRK, was created on June 30 1949 when the Workers Party of North Korea merged with the Workers Party of South Korea (after both of them were created through mergers in 1946).
The whole thing is 50 meters high and consists of three gigantic hands in a circle, holding a hammer (worker), a sickle (peasant) and a brush (intellectual) to symbolize the three pillars of the state. From the outside they are connected by a circular band with the slogan “Long live the Workers Party of Korea, which organizes and guides all victories for the Korean people!” and standing in the center of the monument you can see three gigantic sculptures with the heroic postures.
