Work of its comprovinciana, the sculptor Lola Mora, is a splendid set in marble. The central figure to the illustrious President of standing, leaning on a platform around which is wound a tunic, element which gives airy movement. Three figures that accompany it. The oratory, in the form of a young woman who gives him a laurel, while an Angel Avellaneda a flaming torch. At the bottom, the Capital - homage to the historical accomplishment of the Tucumán - is symbolized by a seated female figure, who holds a cane in one hand and in the other carrier the coat of arms of Buenos Aires.
