The King Memorial Fountain, also known as The Rufus H. King Fountain and The Moses Fountain, is a highlight of Washington Park in Albany, New York.
Erected by J. Massey Rhind in 1893, a huge bronze figure depicting Moses stands on a pile of rocks. His arms are raised up in the air and there is a stick in one of them.
Rhind was one of four sculptors who fashioned models of the fountain and his was selected and commissioned.
It's actually a memorial fountain in memory of Rufus H. King who was in the banking and insurance industries in Albany. His son, Col. Henry L. King left $10,000 in his will for construction of the fountain. A few years after construction began, the cost increased to $30,000, according to reports written on the fountain.
