ASTRONOMY
Artist: Hugo Ballin
On the left, Arzashel consults his early astronomical tables. John of Holywood works on an influential astronomical text. Copernicus, who replaced the earth with the sun as the center of the solar system, stands near Galileo, whose telescope is dwarfed by a modern version.

Leonard's comments:

My dad made great tapioca pudding. It figures that they'd put a guy named John of Holywood in the Griffith Observatory mural.
