The Meeting of the Waters

This fountain by the sculptor Carl Milles symbolizes the union of the Mississippi and Missouri rivers · The two central figures represent the two great rivers while the lesser water creatures suggest the many tributaries and streams · Milles conceived the sculpture as embodiment of the freedom and primeval force of the waterways of the Great Mississippi Valley and he thought of the grouping as a marriage or festival celebrating the coming together of these great waters · The sculptor, Swedish born and a pupil of Rodin, was conscious that the fountain and plaza are a memorial to Louis P. Aloe (1869-1929) a civic figure and long time president of the Board of Alderman whose vision established the Gateway Mall.
