The initiative for the statue was taken in 1984 by an ad hoc private committee and Hamatsos’ brother who, at than time, was the head of Dali Community. This initiative was opposed by Dali Municipality committee who wished, instead of promoting one individual, to dedicate a memorial to all the dead fighters from Dali. 

The cost for the monument was covered through private fundraising. Τhe unveiling took place on March 23th 1985.
