NYC Rockefeller Center Christmas Scene

One of the iconic images of New York City during the holiday season is the huge Christmas tree and the display of lighted angel figures in the Rockefeller Center Mall. This scene makes a beautiful Christmas card and cards are available at discounted prices by volume. You can insert your own personal greeting on the inside of the card.

New York Christmas - Rockefeller Center

A composite of scenes from Rockefeller Center during the Holiday Season that includes the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, a Toy Soldier, Prometheus and Ice Skaters on the Ice Rink, a Rockefeller Center Mall Angel and the giant red Chrismas ball ornament display on Sixth Avenue. A group of images combined that makes a striking Christmas Card or a great souvenir of a trip to New York City during the holidays.

Prometheus Under The Tree NYC

Rockefeller Center in New York City is full of interesting attractions and wonderful art and architecture at all times of the year but it is truly magical at holiday time when the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree is on display. This is an image of the bronze-gilded statue of Prometheus, bathed in colored lights as it is seen at the base of the Christmas Tree on the ice rink. Prometheus, as the Greek legend goes, brought fire to mankind. Leonardo Nole was the model who posed for the sculpture. On the wall behind Prometheus is an inscription paraphrased from Aeschylus that reads: "Prometheus, teacher in every art, brought the fire that hath proved to mortals a means to mighty ends." The sculpture, created by Paul Manship, is cited as the fourth-most familiar statue in the United States.

Prometheus In Black And White

A black and white image of the Prometheus sculpture that sits in the lower plaza of Rockefeller Center Plaza in New York City. The bronze gilded statue of Prometheus is probably the best know sculpture in Rockefeller Plaza, in NYC and in the country and also one of the most photographed. Created by American sculptor Paul Manship, in 1934, the statue has a quote on the wall behind which states "Prometheus, Teacher in Every Art, Brought the Fire That Hath Proved to Mortals a Means to Mighty Ends."
