The story of the human family commences. Placed throughout these windows are images connected to the dawn of man, whether they be religious or scientific. While the lower lines of windows in the series of the Roots of Knowledge typically display scenes from history, the line on top of the windows chronicles the evolution of the written word, the methods by which humanity leaves records and communicates ideas. The earliest steps in this evolutionary chain were through the pictograms and petroglyphs featured in this column’s top window.
