Martin Benka (1888 - 1971) was a famous Slovak painter and we have obtained permission from the Slovak National Museum to use this image. This painting has special relevance to our conference because of Benka's stature in Slovakia, the connection between the Earth, Sun and the sky (planets and stars), and the application of tools in our work.
