This statue, also known as Bethesda Fountain, is on the Bethesda Terrace. The angel references a Biblical site and the Croton water system that first supplied New York City in 1842. The lily in the angel's hand represents the water's purity. 'Angel of the Waters' is the only statue that was commissioned for Central Park. Its sculptor, Emma Stebbins, was the first woman to receive a public art commission in New York City. Photo by MetroFocus.
