Thoroughly Modern Milles

Milles Fountain 2014-03-30 8

Okay, call the pun police. I'll surrender immediately. It was a long day at work.

Another shot from Carl Milles' The Meeting of The Waters. Milles was an important sculptor of the first half of the Twentieth Century. His specialty was fountains. Our colleague Steffe notes that there is a museum dedicated to his work in Stockholm. The statues in our fountain are both stolid and graceful. I'll go back in a few weeks when the water is turned on.

This kind of statues are a sort of trademark for the whole of Scandinavia as I think on Emanuel Vigeland in Norway.
