Photo by Myra Lambino for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Inspiration — the Angel of the Waters at Bethesda Fountain in Bethesda Terrace, Central Park, New York City. The statue was inspired by the Gospel of St. John which tells of an angel blessing the Bethesda Pool — this sculpture was created by Emma Stebbins, the first woman to receive a public art commission in New York City.
