Description: The larger than life bronze statue of Atlas on New York City's Fifth Avenue - installed in 1937 - depicts the heroic-sized ancient Greek titan of astronomy and navigation holding the heavens on his shoulders. As one of Rockefeller Center's greatest Art Deco icons, even Atlas, with his physical strength, wears a mask during the COVID-19 pandemic as a symbolic sign of the
times. This is a uniquely historic image of one of the City's most visited and heralded locations.
