  Prometheus Statue at Sunken Gardens
by butterflykizzez04

When we were there, they were working on this area. I am assuming they had just recently closed the ice rink and was getting it ready for regular spring and summer season.

The statue is 18 feet bronze and gold leaf. It presides in the sunken garden area at Rockefeller center. The pedestal represents Earth and the circle contains the signs of the zodiac representing the heavens.
created by Paul Manship

Free to look at and take pictures.
The flags around the sunken gardens represents the members of the United Nations.
