Rocket Shooter

Rocket Thrower is one of a number of statues created for the 1964-65 New York World's Fair. Since the theme of the fair was flight or space travel this sculpture by Donald De Lue depicts a giant throwing a rocket (in his right hand) through a network of stars (in his left).

NY Times art reviewer John Canaday called it a “most lamentable monster, making Walt Disney look like Leonardo Da Vinci.” 
 
Pictures unfortunately cannot reveal the magnanimity and grandeur of this sculpture. It is to be seen to be appreciated.  

Next in line to be viewed is the Column of Jerash
