I had to Google this gentleman. And I think I would have liked him a lot. He did so much great work and lived to a ripe old age. I wonder if the statue represents him explaining to us non-chemists why we should be careful not to blow up the laboratory?

Blush, I had to click on the link. It's a rather good likeness.

So striking with all the beautiful green background.
