Joining the sculpture were the original bio foundation stones. When the College of Fine Arts and Design was founded in 2000 as a College, there was a simple but solemn ceremony where the then Fr. Rector Tamerlane Lana, OP, blessed several blocks of white stone arranged like a sculpture as a marker for the event. When the Quadricentennial Pavilion was constructed, they were transferred to the corner of the Engineering building.
