This sculpture, located on the clock tower of East Pyne Hall, was created by J. Massey Rhind in the late nineteenth century. Rhind was a well-known sculptor during his time, creating both public monuments and architectural decorations around the United States. Other examples of his work can be found in Washington, DC, and on the facade of Alexander Hall here on Princeton’s campus.
