***************

▶ "A ceramic mural by Atlanta artist Christine Sibley adorns the Ferst Fountain. Water naiads are represented in bas relief peering out from behind the waterfall. This fountain, donated in honor of Helen Montag Ferst, was built of gunite in 1985. Local artist Christine Sibley obtained financing and added a ceramic facade. In 1990, she completed the edges and the tops of the walls. In 2012, the facade received much-needed repair."
