UNION SQUARE PARK IN NYC: A GIANT KABBALISTIC TREE OF LIFE?

 

I noticed this while walking through Manhattan recently. The photograph on the left is of a bronze plaque found on the sidewalk alongside the park on Union Square East. It represents the layout of the park itself. The image on the right is a standard dipiction of the Kabbalistic Tree of Life. All ten sephirot appear to be accounted for. I have created this post because I could find no other mention of this striking correspondence on the internet. It is interesting to note that at some point in the past the equestrian statue of George Washington was moved from its original location, dipicted on the plaque, to its current location, which can be seen to correspond to the position of the "Yesod," or foundation, sephirah.
