View of the Polish Nationality Room inside the Cathedral of Learning. The Polish Classroom, dedicated on February 16, 1940, is inspired by the 16th century Polish Renaissance Wawel Castle located in Kracow. The painting shows Copernicus studying the sky and the windows contain the coats of arms for several Polish universities. The ceiling was painted by artists from Poland who required a dozen fresh eggs each day to mix egg tempera paints.
