Ye gods and little fishes (Sunday morning in deep waters)
Sunday Morning in Deep Waters by Carl Milles, located on Central Campus, University of Michigan.
Located on Ingalls Mall, between the League and Burton Tower, this bronze fountain by the renowned Swedish sculptor Carl Milles, depicts Father Triton and his sons on a holiday excursion. The fountain was a gift of Charles Baird (AB & LLB 1895, AM 1940) in memory of Thomas McIntyre Cooley, professor of Law and Dean of the Law School. The fountain has been fondly called "Ye Gods and Little Fishes" by students. Carl Milles was the first sculptor-in-residence at Cranbrook, where this piece was executed. It was his 12th fountain and 96th major work and was acquired by U-M in 1940.
