POWER OF WATER


The Power of Water Fountain, designed by Henry Lion, Jason Herron & Sherry Peticolas c.1935 is one of hundreds of public sculptures created during the federally-assisted Public Works of Art Project. A cast central figure of a woman symbolizes the power of water, the flowing lines of her hair and garments evoking water; a bas-relief panel on the face of the lower basin depicts the eternal struggle to obtain the precious resource. The fountain/sculpture is owned by the Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department.
