Description: Using the figure of a woman as a personification for an abstract concept is a tradition that goes back centuries. Here, she is shown as Arithmetic, one of the Seven Liberal Arts and essential tenets of a high education. Engrossed in her calculations, a satisfied smile spreading across her face, Arithmetica is surrounded by coins, books and her children, - the mathematicians and architects.
