On the northwest corner of Ballantine Hall on the IU campus, you'll find the carving Veritas Filia Temporis, translated as Truth is the daughter of time. The carved limestone image was created in 1959 by Robert Laurent (yes, that Robert Laurent, who also created the Showalter Fountain). The work depicts Father Time and his daughter, Truth.
