This great seal of the University of California, Berkeley campus appears in my Photographic Periodic Table Poster representing berkelium, which was discovered there and is named after it. This highly unstable element can't reasonably be photographed, and a picture of its namesake seemed like a reasonable alternative. The sample photograph includes text exactly as it appears in the poster, which you are encouraged to buy a copy of.
This seal is Copyright (c) 2001 and Trademark (TM) UC Regents, used with permission, and therein lies a tale I'm not going to repeat here.
