One thought on “Triton Pools at Cranbrook I (master plan: Saarinen) (sculpture: Milles)

  1. Designed by Finnish-American architect Eliel Saarinen, the Triton Pools are a series of terraced reflecting pools. At the top are bronzes designed by Swedish sculptor Carl Milles based on the classical myth of Triton, a sea god with the head of a man and the tail of a fish (not appearing in this photo).
