The Librarian's Room
Winged Boy with Palm Branch and Trumpet
Below each of the pendentive paintings is the figure
of a winged boy, by Albert Weinert, approximately two feet in height.
Holding a palm branch in one hand and blowing a trumpet with the other
hand, the designs of the winged boy alternate. In the northeast and southwest
pendentives, he holds the palm branch above his head. In the northwest
and southeast pendentives, he holds the palm branch to his side. The palm
branch and trumpet beling blown symbolize triumph or victory.
