Table of Contents is a sculpture designed by the American artist Dale Enochs. The sculpture is made from limestone and was commissioned by Joseph F. Miller.[1] The sculpture is located across the street from the IUPUI campus,[2] at the N.E. corner of W Michigan St and West St, and sits in front of the Miller Centre in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. Table of Contents displays four geometric shapes, which include a circle, triangle, crescent and square. These shapes sit atop a table with four legs, all pieces are carved from limestone. The shapes as well as the table are carved with curved lines which run up and down the sculpture, but some areas are left smooth. The square has "terrae" written on the side. Terrae means extended mass land.
