“The motif was an art project by Rase and Nees depicting the world of Humanities and Natural Sciences in harmony***. It is composed of two elements: a human figure in two elevations and an architectural structure.
The human figure is an artistic quote, it is a proportion study by Albrecht Dürer and represents the Humanities. The figure is shown frontal and on the side, displaying the auxiliary lines used in constructing the drawing.
The two elevations resemble the scale figures used in many architectural illustrations, positioned besides a structure formed by aligned and overlying cuboctahedrons.
The drawing of the cuboctahedron structure used in this computer graphic stands for the Natural Sciences. It is a rotated version of a computer generated isometric drawing of Ludwig Rase´s housing structure.”
