Item Details
As Above, So Below is a 1998 glass and bronze mosaic artwork found embellishing a wall at Grand Central North passageway. This historic ceiling, by Ellen Driscoll, reveals the night sky with golden stars that form the constellations. These scenes bring to life ancient tales that demonstrate how the stories told about the heavens reflect the way we live on earth. It also summons the everlasting and the ephemeral, reminding us of our spiritual and worldly past while we hurry through the station.
