(1892-1972)Italian-born sculptor Albert Milani's majestic marble eagles crown the Art Deco-style Tennessee Supreme Court building across the street, constructed in the early 1930s. Tennessee marble, perhaps Knoxville's most famous natural resource, has been quarried and carved for use in numerous buildings and monuments, locally and nationally. With abundant quarries in operation surrounding Knoxville, it is no wonder that the city earned the name "Marble City" in the late 1880s.
