The Skating Princess

The Skating Princess by Carl Milles is a fast-paced, lively skating girl, the arms are stretched and the short skirt turns in a piruette. Milles created this bronze in 1949 after seeing a skating girl in Rockefeller Plaza in New York. He became so fond of her movements that he tried to catch them in bronze. The sculpture does not have much in common with Milles heavy themes such as "Man and Pegasus" or "Hand of God" that came together at the same time.
The motif is found at Millesgården.
