The Black Angel of Council Bluffs

The Ruth Anne Dodge Memorial, also known as The Black Angel, by the sculptor  Daniel Chester French. I visited the site in August, 1994.


  1. An imposing piece of sculpture. Great size...it looks to be at least 10 feet high.

  2. The sculpture is imposing, Ray. Worth noting the idea originated in a dream or vision.
