The Moses fountain in Washington Park, Albany NY which is really the King Memorial Fountain which was to commemorate the Rock of Horeb.

The fountain was constructed and unveiled in 1893. The New York Times gushed:

“The treatment the artist (John Massey Rhind) has given Mr. King’s suggestion will win him a place among the foremost sculptors of the country. On a bed of rock, taken in its native state from Old Storm King Mountain on the Hudson, and laid artistically without the least use of a chisel, rises to a height of twenty-nine feet above the basin the noble and commanding figure of the great Egyptian leader and lawgiver. Besides Moses there are four other groups in bronze. The principal fiqure is ten feet in height and required 3,800 pounds of metal.”
The Times also notes that “All (figures) were modeled after Hebrews, that of Moses being taken from a Hungarian Jew about fifty years old The maiden, representing youth, was after the daughter of this man. The other groups represent infancy, manhood, and old age. All are endeavoring to obtain some of the water which gushes out of the rocks at the feet of Moses. The water does not spurt from the massive rock work, but flows in pretty cascades.”
