Walter Runeberg cast the bronze bust in 1909 to be given as a gift to Mechelin on his 70th anniversary by the citizens of Helsinki. The bust was initially kept at the Ateneum's art museum, but in 1943 the Pro Helsinki foundation placed it in its present location in the park of the House of the Estates.
