Clash Of The Myths: NY Adventure 11

NY Adventure 11:
Clash Of The Myths

The irony of the two clashing images at Rockefeller Center. The first is of the biblical creator God, while the one in front of it, as one of the most photographed statues in New York, is the Greek god Prometheus, who defied Zeus and such by presenting knowledge of fire to humans, which enabled re-creation.

More irony is how the thief of fire is above an active fountain, which sprouts the opposite element of water. Does this accidentally represent the ongoing struggle of humans against the elements? Think climate crisis. Of course, these deities are myths, though this classic case of rebellion and reinvention does reflects human-nature.
