"A Heavenly Fountain"

As you take a ferry around the Nacka Strand area, there's a good chance your eyes will fall upon a magnificent arch. The arch is clad in steel and a fierce jet of water plummets from its top. On a closer look, a sculpture of 'God our Father' can be seen at the peak of the structure, he's 'placing stars in heaven'. An 'angel' stands below the structure, gazing upwards, 'passing stars' to the celestial being atop. Originally envisioned by Carl Milles, this monument was intended to be in Manhattan, NY, as a tribute to the newly formed United Nations in 1946. The project was stalled due to various reasons and never took off. It was later taken up and completed by Milles' student and long-term assistant Marshall Fredericks and inaugurated by King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia in 1995.
