This 1939 monument was designed by Kārlis Zemdega and is dedicated to Agriculture Minister Arturs Alberings from the first period of Latvian independence.  The monument shows a young man with a grain basket.  The monument disappeared during the Soviet occupation, and a gypsum statue of a Pioneer was installed instead.  In 1977, children found some parts of the old sculpture buried in the ground, and 10 years later someone found the head of the monument.  After a restoration, the Sower sculpture is now in its historical location – in the Terneja Park alongside Rīgas Street.

The monument The Sower was erected in 1939 and designed by sculptor K. Zemdega. The young man with his sowing basket is devoted to the Minister of Agriculture, a Rūjiena native Arturs Alberings.

One night in 1951, the statue was toppled and disappeared. Alberings name was erased from the pedestal and a plaster statue of a Young Pioneer was erected. Remains of the statue were found by children in 1977, but the head was missing. Basing their search on local rumours, divers Voldemārs Rains and Aleksandrs Koļesņikovs found the head of the statue in the Rūja not far from the Centre bridge in August 1988.

The Sower resumed his spot on November 18, 1988 and the inscription to Arturs Alberings has also been replaced.
