Artist's Description

Bethesda Terrace is the architectural achievement that defines the heart of Central Park as it seamlessly joins the Mall and Naumburg Bandshell ascending the stairs, and descending the stairs leads to the famous Angel of the Waters Fountain.
The Arcade is a richly decorated component of Bethesda Terrace, and now the treasured Minton tile ceiling, The Arcade’s ceiling is made up of 15,876 elaborately patterned encaustic tiles, handmade by Minton and Company, a leading 19th century ceramic manufacturer in Stoke-on-Trent, England. The Arcade’s encaustic tiles are divided among 49 panels. Each panel contains 324 tiles, with repeated stylized floral motifs and geometrical forms in earth tones, cobalt, and forest green. There are two panel designs, which differ only in their central medallion: 25 panels bear a small central rosette medallion and 24 panels with a large pinwheel medallion.
