Vison of Peace Statue

"Out of that smoke of tobacco and fire arises in their imaginations, their vision of peace, talking to them and to the world" Carl Milles-sculptor

This amazing statue is the largest carved Onyx statue in the World. This 55 ton, 36 foot high tribute to peace,depicts 5 Indians sitting around a fire smoking their peace pipes. It was dedicated in 1936 to WWI veterans of Ramsey Co. (the county I live in here in MN) as a tribute to everlasting peace.
