Water is the theme, the pioneer woman holds a jug on her shoulder and the water theme continues down. At the base of her feet, clouds shaped like kneeling nudes pour water down into the orchard fields and that flows into the river which empties into the sea. Sea creatures swirl around the base.
The statue of the woman is more than 13 feet tall and the entire sculpture is more than 22 feet tall. It is tall and imposing. As an interesting fact is that this is the original statue and a copy was given to Yokohama, Japan in 1960.
This statue is a 1937 WPA construction with San Diego's Fine Arts joint contribution.More
