This large bas-relief panel of Ceres, the Roman goddess of agriculture, is located on the art-deco building that housed one of the first faculties at UWA. It depicts Ceres holding a pumpkin, a sheaf of wheat and vegetables in the fold of her gown. Six smaller panels represent aspects of the agricultural industry.
