A black and white scene of a crowd encircling Bethesda fountain is rendered from a distance. Paired with a portrait of the angel atop the fountain from a closer view. A landmark in LGBTQ history, the sculpture was designed by Emma Stebbins in 1873, as well as used as a location in the play Angels in America. The myth of the angel Bethesda is told that upon touching the earth a healing pool arose at her feet, providing a place for the sick to find refuge.
