Guardian of the Water
I first showed you the sculpture La Tehuana by Donal Hord. Above is another fountain sculpture called Guardian of the Water by this San Diego artist and was dedicated to the city in 1939. Like La Tehuana, the above was made as part of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) / Federal Art Project, a program that provided jobs for unemployed artists during the Great Depression. The building in the background is the County Administration Building.
