The Progress of Science

The Progress of Science

On the southern wall of the James Watt South Building is the above relief, called The Progress of Science, by Eric Kennington, from 1957-8.  The relief apparently represents the development of science and technology.

There are Latin inscriptions on various part of the relief, taken from the mottoes of various engineering societies which read as follows: PER MARE / PER TERRAS (Through sea and land), SCIENTIA / ET / INGENIO (By science and genius), and DISCE DOCE (Learn, Teach). There’s also an inscription in English which reads PROGRESS.

Can you find the University spire in the engraving?
