Arts That Benefit Everyone

Arts That Benefit Everyone QUAE PROSUNT OMNIBUS ARTES

On the east side of the Hunter Memorial sits a coat of arms which I presumed to be the Hunter Coat of Arms, but can’t find verification for that anywhere. The Latin inscription below it reads “Arts That Benefit Everyone”. A fitting motto for the source of the collections which have grown to be the Hunterian Museum.

Correction: As corrected by a reader in the comments below, the arms and motto are those of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. (Thank you!)
