1993 Plaque Progress: Carving Complete
Above is a photo of the completed carving for the 1993 Form plaque. The photos below show details of the finished carving:
This photo of the upper left corner shows the open book with initials DVH to represent the beginning of the Rectorship of David Hicks.
The upper right corner features the outline of the Tien Track which was dedicated in October of 1992.
The bottom left and right corners are carved with comedy and tragedy masks to represent the dedication of the Tracy Memorial Theater which happened during graduation weekend of 1993.
The The blizzard of 1993 represented by the large snowflake design in the background of the plaque.
The carving is now ready to be sealed with a linseed oil finish. After that dried it will be stained to match the color of the oak frame. The plaques that hang in the Lower Dining Hall are not being done with a painted finish so as to match the existing plaques already hanging in that space. Check back soon for a sneak peek photo of the finished carving.
