Ian Potter Museum Melbourne. The Leckie Window

On a visit to The Ian Potter Museum to day I  saw the magnificent Leckie Window below
This picture is of the information about the window.
What caught my attention was the statement by Sir John Latham, the deputy director of Melbourne University at the time the window was presented. ' If the surroundings of the university were beautiful, then the spirit of a university would be better than if the surroundings were merely utilitarian'
I agree totally with this sentiment. And what a challenge!
