POMONA, Goddess of Orchards, Gardens and Abundance

Atop the Joseph Pulitzer fountain in front of The Plaza is the bronze statue of POMONA, the Roman goddess of orchards, fruit trees and gardens. This statue is a creation of sculptor KARL BITTER. Usually associated with abundance, Pomona is often shown carrying either a large platter of fruits or a cornucopia. I made these images of Pomona on December 28, 2008.
