At the end of Kūrmājas Prospekts in the Seaside Park is a monument in commemoration of the perished fishermen and seafarers – a statue of a woman looking into the distance toward the sea, waiting for sailors who have not returned.

On the base of the monument is a plaque in memory of the pilots and crew of a US airplane that was shot down over the sea on 8 April 1950 by USSR military forces.

Locals also call this monument the Vēja Māte, or Mother of Wind, thus indicating the place where to meet before heading for the beach together.

Monument to the sailors and fishermen lost at sea (Latvian: Piemineklis bojā gājušajiem jūrniekiem un zvejniekiem) is a notable modern monument and a sightseeing place in Liepāja, Latvia.

The monument was designed by architect Gunārs Asaris and sculptor Alberts Terpilovskis. It was built in 1977 with a funding from LBORF and the fishing kolhoz Boļševiks. The monument is located on the shore of the Baltic Sea in Liepāja seaside park, at the end of Kūrmājas Prospect. Here in the beginning of the 20th century was located Kurhaus. The monument consists of a bronze figure of a woman on 11 meter high V-shaped pedestal, covered by Saaremaa dolomite.

On 8 April 2000 a memorial plate dedicated to American pilots whose aircraft was brought down on 8 April 1950 by the USSR Air Forces near Liepāja was added to the pedestal of the monument.
