Annotation

The bronze sculpture, Cordula, belongs to a series of winged female sculptures which Lilius created in the 1960s. The Society of Swedish Literature in Finland (Svenska litteratursällskapet i Finland) commissioned the artist to make the work entitled Paratiisitanssi (transl. Paradise Dance) which, after the artist fell terminally ill, remained only in it's early form, or creation. The Cordula sculpture was later realised, from the plaster model to bronze, under permission of the artist's family after the artist's death.
