Entrance Hallway Mural
Mural painting by Eugene Savage of the Yale School of Fine Arts. The painting is of Athene in white depicted warding off two devils, symbolic of malevolent influence and disorder. The flying figures at the right represent divinity, the sciences and the arts. Below is a group symbolic of modern occupations: agriculture, industry, and intellectual endeavor. Behind the figure of Athene is the skyline of lower Manhattan. At the top of the canvas stands a temple whose frieze bears the Columbia motto (p.103, A GUIDE TO COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY edited by John William Robson).
