Uraeus - Anselm Kiefer at Rockefeller Center

Clear blue sky at Rockefeller Center!



I was strolling around Rockefeller Center and enjoying another art presentation here.
This time we have Uraeus, interesting work of Anselm Kiefer.
Huge open book that has wings, with a large snake crawling up.
Interesting, isn't it?
Against the blue sky, this statue is really striking.



Here's what I got from Rockefeller Center's website regarding the work:

"The sculpture's cryptic title, Uraeus, refers to the erect shape of the Egyptian cobra, associated with the serpent goddess Wadjet and a symbol of power and divine authority. The wings evoke the headdresses and necklaces worn by Egyptian royalty in homage to the vulture goddess Nekhbet. Wadjet and Nekhbet were the guardians of Lower and Upper Egypt, respectively, and following ancient Egypt's unification, became the joint patrons of the civilization."


It is put in the Channel Garden facing the Fifth Avenue and will be displayed from May 2nd to July 22, 2018.

  6. Yang saya herankan, kenapa malah yang sering terhadirkan di sana budaya Egypt ya, bukan budaya nenek moyang suku asli di benua itu.
