Rhodes House: Rotunda Roof

More controversial in large?

I'm not sure whether I should write anything or not...
This is the roof of the rotunda of Rhodes House on South Parks Road. After all the controversy over Oriel's statue of Cecil Rhodes, I'm slightly baffled by the lack of attention that Rhodes House has garnered, but perhaps I've missed something. The Rhodes House website states that "Rhodes House serves as a memorial to Cecil Rhodes", but perhaps its intriguing architecture and obvious connection with the positive aspects of Rhodes's legacy (as home of the Rhodes Scholarships) have saved it from becoming a target for Rhodes Must Fall.
In any case, the proud Zimbabwe bird certainly doesn't seem to be keeping its head down.
