Tiles: The Zodiac

These tiles depicting the elements of the zodiac are on the east and west facing walls, respectively, of the couryard of the Bryan Mullanphy school on Shaw Boulevard. The zodiac tiles appear identical; the borders are similar in design but the individual tile patterns vary. The architect was William B. Ittner of St. Louis, who had 50 schools to his credit plus several homes and notable public buildings.
