Wisdom On A Postage Stamp
New York City is a popular tourist destination for travelers from the United States and those around the world. Rockefeller Center is ranked as #56 out of 150 of America’s Favorite Architecture spots to visit. One of the favorite views among tourists, and New Yorker’s alike is the iconic figure of “Wisdom” which is installed over the entrance to the GE Building at Rockefeller Center. This New York skyscraper is the centerpiece of Rockefeller Center in midtown Manhattan. You can’t help noticing “Wisdom” as he is a 37 foot art deco giant. He can be seen all the way from Fifth Avenue and is a popular tourist landmark.
The United States Postal Service issued a postage stamp that featured this incredible work of art in October of 2003. The $1 postage stamp was then reprinted again in September of 2008.
Not shown on the postage stamp are the words that are printed below this artwork, presumably because it is a Biblical passage. The sign reads, “Wisdom and Knowledge Shall Be the Stability of Thy Times” which is from Isaiah 33:6.
