Kronos

This time I managed to take a picture of the Kronos statue in the Barker Center's Thompson Room (actually, I will take this picture tomorrow:-). Next time I will write down who did it, where it came from and what the symbols are.Today's stair number: 1

More info (added 13 April 2008): The statue is by Frank Edwin Elwell. According to the plaque, "the original heroic-sized statue was made for the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, NY, 1901." The plaque also reads: "Kronos (Time) with veiled face, moves forward inevitably whether on swift wing or at the pace of a turtle. He holds in his hands all things that we know."
