This rare and beautiful figure by Milles is the artists first portrayal of an Angel. This lifetime casting, with its exquisite parcel-gilt surface was made in an edition of twelve, at the Herman Bergman foundry in Stockholm, Sweden.

New Yorkers may recall Milles fantastic “Fountain of the Muses” at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, now installed at The Brookgreen Gardens Museum in South Carolina. His “Man and Nature” (1937) is installed at One Rockefeller Center, NY.

Renowned worldwide, Milles emigrated to America in 1929 and was the professor of sculpture at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. The artists home in Stockholm, is now the namesake museum “Millesgarden” dedicated to his work.
