School Symbol

IVS is an institute of scholarship in the field of visual arts. The history of visual language within our heritage reflects dynamic continuity and a rich diversity of idiom. The elements drawn upon to symbolise the identity of the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture are based on the primary sources of life.

Water:

Symbolises knowledge, its acquisition and dissemination.

Waves:

Symbolise the cyclical motion of life.

Tree:

Symbolises the evolution and growth of thought and vision.

The geometric patterns of the symbol unify space in a rhythmic order, while the sculpted spaces symbolise the sky, the environment, and the limitlessness of human possibility.
