Pic(k) of the Week: Sibley's Ferst Fountain

Sibley's Ferst Fountain

Into each life, a little whimsy must fall.
A ceramic mural by Atlanta, Georgia artist Christine Sibley (1948-1999) adorns the Ferst Fountain [at the Atlanta Botanical Garden]. Water naiads are represented in bas relief peering out from behind the waterfall. This fountain, donated in honor of [past trustee?] Helen Montag Ferst, was built of gunite in 1985. Sibley obtained financing and added the ceramic facade in 1990. In 2012, the fountain received much-needed repair.

I snapped this image at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, on 8 November 2020.
