SIFAS logo and motto:
Kala Samskriti Lakshanam
Art Characterises Civilisation
The initial SIFAS logo was designed as a circle with the figure of a dancer in the top half and musical instruments at the bottom, the whole surrounded by a ring made of lotus petals. In the centre was the Sanskrit motto - Kala Samskriti Lakshanam meaning "Art Characterises Civilisation".
A second circular logo with the figure of Nataraja, the Cosmic Dance in Hindu mythology was added on later.
