Look up!

Share your memories.


Carl Milles turns 150 years in 2025 and we are asking for your help. Do you have a personal memory or story about a sculpture by Carl Milles, from a public square, or the Millesgården Museum, that you would like to share? Did you rendezvous by the Orpheus Fountain at Konserthuset in Stockholm for your first date? Perhaps you pondered on the smallness of man every time you passed God’s Hand on your jog through Eskilstuna city park? Or cooled off in the Poseidon Fountain at Götaplatsen that sweltering summer? Or why not get involved and create new memories? Carl Milles’s sculptures can be seen in many places around Sweden. We believe that lots of people have memories related to his works, and we would love to hear your story!
