See any similarities?
The mural on the 4th floor of BYU Harold B. Lee Library is an allusion to Raphael's School of Athens. Now I know I'm not the first to realize this, and trust me, I realized it a long time ago - in fact on New Student Orientation day, but it still makes me so happy that I know this.
Growing up, we had this painting framed in our house...from the source. We bought a print in Italy after visiting the Vatican. It is one of Raphael's Masterpieces.
We are all philosophers in our own way, especially little kids. We can learn a lot from the little juvies.
Next time you see this mural my BYU brothers and sisters, check out the list Michaelangelo wrote to himself in the foreground.
I should brush up on my Plato and Socrates?
