Reproduction of Frieze of Prophets, McClain High School The catalogue published to accompany the McClain High School reproductions translated the inscription on Daniel’s scroll for the reader (“they that be wise shall shine”), thereby explicitly identifying the images with the Library’s sanctification of public education and human achievement. In almost all reproductions of Sargent’s prophets, English characters replaced Sargent’s Hebrew labels naming each prophet.
