Wisdom, by Lee Lawrie

Lee Lawrie created twelve sculptural pieces to help complete Raymond Hood's vision for his 'new' Rockefeller Center.  Lawrie's Wisdom is an imposing art deco relief that adorns the entranceway to Hood's RCA Building (Now the General Electric Building), and embodies the impactful geometric style that dominated one of America's great architectural periods.

I know, it's not a print piece but like most things from the art deco movement, I feel that Wisdom will translate well to vector format.  If it helps, Lawrie is said to have taken inspiration from William Blake's Urizen as the Creator of the Material World, which is a water colourso it probably counts.  

If it also helps, I say it counts.
