Hague, who lived in rural New York State, drew materials and inspiration for his sculptures from the landscape around him.  He titled his wood sculptures after the location where he found the log used to make them, followed by the type of wood.   This work probably refers to a river – Angel Mill Brook – near his home.   Hague made this sculpture by cutting deeply into the trunk of a single walnut tree.  Although he dramatically reshaped the log, Hague’s goal was not to produce a perfectly smooth, man-made shape but instead to let the struggle between man and nature show.
