A statue of the titan Prometheus is a famous landmark at the very center of the Rockefeller family’s huge commercial complex encompassing 19 buildings and covering more than 22 acres of Midtown Manhattan land.

Prometheus was a trickster god who gave fire (knowledge) to humans which he had himself fashioned out of clay.

He was punished by Zeus for doing so and was sentenced to have his liver eaten for eternity by an eagle.

The flame is also present on the Standard Oil corporate logo. Standard Oil is the original source of the Rockefeller’s massive financial empire.
