Stone carving of Kircher's Enigma (Drawing), Chemistry Building, Rice University
A drawing of Kircher's Enigma. The design is a circle inside of a triangle with a cross at the base of the triangle. Around the central design are three concentric circles, containing the following text: "Sola Vera Laudat Philosphia Homines Veritatis Rectae. Fiet Inde Xenophontis Verum Mandatum. Lege Omnes Sophos Ergo Sic Twos." Original resource is a color 35 mm slide.
This slide is a part of the "A Walking Tour of Rice University" slide presentation by James C. Morehead, Jr. The original glass plate negatives were given to Morehead by Rice's first Supervising Architect, William Ward Watkin, for use in Morehead's construction class. The glass slides show the construction of several buildings at Rice, including Lovett Hall, the Physics Building, the Mechanical Laboratory, Power House, the Chemistry Building, and the Football Stadium.
