Bethesda Fountain at Dusk, Central Park, New York, by James Maher Photography

Bethesda Fountain was unveiled in 1873 and its main sculpture, designed by Emma Stebbins, was the first public major work of art designed by a female in New York City.  The sculpture, entitled Angels of the Water, depicts chapter 5 of the Gospel of John, where an angel blesses the Pool of Bethesda with healing powers.  Below the angel are four cherubs (or divine beings) representing Temperance, Purity, Health and Peace.
