Using Francis Bacon’s quote, “Knowledge is Power,” as the central theme, Zenos Frudakis sculpted a monument to inspire the process and pleasure of learning. The sculpted large open book features Charles Darwin and Albert Einstein emerging from the pages. These influential figures represent key shifts in the understanding of the world and its sciences. Relief faces and quotes of 31 icons of science, history, mathematics and the arts portray contrasting theories, philosophies and politics, as well as struggles shared across generations. The viewer is led through a process of exploration and is left to weigh countering viewpoints to discover their personal resonance.
