The symbolic imagery:
Gregory works at his desk, surrounded by books, music and instruments. A portrait of him leans against his seat. 

Two school boys peer in and a Roman aqueduct is in the distance. A dove sits at his shoulder and amused angels look down from behind the banner: Gregorius Maximus

On the stone wall are symbols of knowledge, Great Britain, the West Indies, a trowel, the papacy, and the legend:Servus Servorum Dei.
