The Power of the Arts
Panel directly beneath the dome of the rotunda of the Palace of Fine Arts, by Bruno Louis Zimm, "The Power of the Arts." In the center the male figure, Genius, is training the winged horse, Pegasus, Inspiration. The group to the left of the panel shows learning and fame inspiring a youth; learning carries a lamp above her head, and fame holds and olive branch and a statuette, typifying civilization and art. To the right is music playing the lute, followed by a tamed lion.
