At Rockefeller Center

If you go to New York one of the places you have to go to is of course Rockefeller Center. If you get a chance you should go to Top of the Rock. And of course there is the Lego Store which you cannot pass up.

At Rockefeller Center is Split Rocker by Jeff Koons:
Rockefeller Center has a new centerpiece — all 37 feet and 50,000 flowers of it.

It’s Jeff Koons’ “Split-Rocker,” a mammoth topiary the Public Art Fund unveiled Wednesday at 30 Rock, right where the Christmas tree usually stands.

Inspired by his son’s rocking horse and a toy dinosaur, Koons melded the two heads into one Picasso-like asymmetrical whole, with “handles” protruding from each side. Live flowers — begonias, geraniums, petunias and more — color the sculpture, watered by an irrigation system within its stainless-steel armature.

It is rather interesting to see.
