This stained window "Education" originally commissioned from Louis Comfort Tiffany's Tiffany Glass Company during the building of Yale University's Chittenden Hall (now Linsly-Chittenden Hall, after being connected to a nearby building), funded by Simeon Baldwin Chittenden. Personifications of Art, Science, Religion, and Music are represented in the work, as angels. Other angelic representations of related virtues, values, and ideas attend them, each identified by words in their halos.
It depicts Science at the left, attended by personifications of Devotion, Labor, Truth, Research and Intuition; and Religion at the right, personified by Purity, Faith, Hope, Reverence and Inspiration; and presided over by the central personification of "Light·Love·Life".
These two paths govern most modern humans thought waves he who goes one way is missing the other path those who manage to do a balancing act between them have some harmony....and this seems timeless.
This piece with oil alike paint strokes as well as stained glass and division sections is a real window to humanities core.
