I've always had a fascination with this Atlas statue in Rockefeller Center. The statue shows Atlas holding up the world and was created by sculptor Lee Lawrie with help from Rene Paul Chambellan. The statue was installed in 1937. I've always admired this statue for it's strong Art Deco style. When I was in New York this time, I wanted to make sure I got a close up of the statue, In close you can really appreciate the detail work that makes the statue so stunning.
