One of three bas-relief panels designed by artist Batholomew Mako (1890-1970) that adorn the exterior of City Hall. According to notes on the rear of the photo, the untitled east wing panel represents “a Jehovah-like figure representing religion,” a “Goddess of Plenty,” a “family scene,” and a “scene [that] represents the hurts of war.” Additional panels are present on the west wing of the building as well as on the Third Street-facing side. Mako was also responsible for the painting, “Justice,” that once hung in the police courtroom in City Hall and presently hangs in the City Attorney’s office.
