Based on Renaissance color, the eight panels deal with themes that reflect fundamental human endeavors and achievements. Imagery in panels #5-8 includes a water/landscape anchored by design elements from the Hoover Dam, the human heart flanked by large sculptural fighures, a lily, the traditional symbol of rebith, and Prometheus, the hero from Greek mythology who stole fire from the gods and offered it to humanity as a gift of culture and learning.
