Wisdom in stamp

I am taking another trip around the world. If it's via postcards on Fridays/Saturdays, on Sundays, it will be via stamps. This trip is sponsored by Viridian's Postcard Blog and today we start off in the North American and Mesoamerican continent.

I guess there's no better place to start this trip but from where my yesterday's post for Round d' World Weekends was stationed. Yes, New York, it is! *wink*

From Niagara Falls we move to the Rockefeller Center in the city proper of New York City, NY. Here's a stamp showing a sculpture at the entrance of the GE Building that houses the well known NBC studios. The relief on the stamp is called 'Wisdom'. It was completed in 1931-1933. The inscription reads:

"Wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times." 
Isaiah 33:6

And here's another picture of 'Wisdom' showing more of the building where it is located:

Wow! I could have never known these things if not for this stamp. Thanks Viridian for this weekly Sunday project!

Remembering 9-11 with the American people today. Have a meaningful Sunday everyone!
