In 1935, San Diego Sculptor Donal Hord was commissioned by the WPA Federal Arts Project to create a sculpture for a tile mosaic fountain in the courtyard of the House of Hospitality in Balboa Park. He was one of the local artists chosen to design public art sculptures to capture the spirit of the New Deal. The 39 X 28-inch fountain is made of Indiana limestone and depicts an Aztec woman pouring water out of an olla directly into the mosaic fountain.
