This is the Angels of the Water sculpture on the Bethesda Terrace at Central Park.  I've always wanted to do a series of angel statues for the night sky print… and just might.  Look for them in the Treetops and Backyards folder.  (But you'll find Angels Landing in our Mountain folder… a really beautiful site at Zion National Park.)

Here is part to the Wikipedia entry about this statue:

The pool is centered by a fountain sculpture designed by Emma Stebbins in 1868 and unveiled in 1873.  Stebbins was the first woman to receive a public commission for a major work of art in New York City. The bronze, eight-foot statue depicts a female winged angel touching down upon the top of the fountain, where water spouts and cascades into an upper basin and into the surrounding pool. It was the only statue in the park called for in the original design. Beneath her are four four-foot cherubs representing , Purity, Health and Peace.

 Also called the Angel of the Waters, the statue refers to the Gospel of John, Chapter 5, where there is a description of an angel blessing the Pool of Bethesda, giving it healing powers.  In Central Park the referent is the Croton Aqueduct, opened in 1842, providing the city for the first time with a dependable supply of pure water: thus the angel carries a lily in one hand, representing purity, and with the other hand she blesses the water below.
