The goal of this design is to create a bridge between the academic and military communities on the UW campus which have been historically divided. The Goddess Minerva is Goddess of both war and education which makes her the perfect connector. She is pictured on the actual Medal of Honor and traditional statues of Minerva grace several universities. Here her face is mysteriously hidden in cast glass atop a columnar basalt pedestal.
