Prometheus


No not the movie, but the statue of the titan Prometheus - bringing fire to mankind - at the Rockefeller Center in Manhattan. The bronze gilded sculpture is located at the plaza in front of the 30 Rockefeller Plaza building. Usually featured in Christmas-themed or love story movies,  the plaza becomes a skating rink during winter.


The wall behind the statue has the inscription from Aeschylus:
"Prometheus, teacher in every art, brought the fire that hath proved to mortals a means to mighty ends."
