The etched stone and terrazzo floor combines a myriad of images from nature and mathematical forms, and quotations from many different cultures. Circles suggest individual cells, celestial bodies, the creation of worlds; suns with emanating rays show young and old stages of a star's evolution. The spiral of life evoked by the chambered nautilus, the single-celled plankton, and the perfect geometry of a beehive bring together the life force, evolution, culture and spirit.
