Three Angel Musicians

By Carl Milles
Category: Sculpture


Milles’ angels can be found all over the country in different configurations. These three angels holding a flute, a horn, and a pan-pipe are just a sample of the many angels Milles produced throughout his career. Milles wrote:

Today you play the flute
To us assembled here.
May you often come to this our village
And often play for pleasure
That you may joyfully report to Heaven
And God will smile when He hears you.
