Video Feature: Wheel of Life Mosaic

The “Wheel of Life” mosaic at the center of our Park Avenue Lobby floor, designed by French artist Louis Rigal, is comprised of 148,000 hand-cut marble tiles.

Rigal’s iconic design depicts the drama of human existence from birth to old age and death. The first group shows the happiness of a family as a newborn baby awakens. The second group represents youth and friendship. The third depicts the struggle for life with its defeats and disasters. The fourth group represents domestic felicity and mature serenity. In the fifth and sixth groups, the “Wheel of Life” dramatically turns full circle towards old age and death.
