The monument was commissioned by the Paralimni Municipality. It was delivered in 2011 and was situated in Agios Georgios Park, creating a unified whole with the preexisting – since 2003 – dead and missing heroes’ memorial. 

A statement on the low pedestal underscores Cypriot women’s predominant duties and identity: She is “a busy bee, a field worker, a life pillar and mother of the Cypriot heroes” (Πολύβουη μέλισσα, της γης εργάτισσα, της ζωής στυλοβάτισσα, ηρώων μάνα Κυπριώτισσα).
