I need help with translation

some translation needed

Can anyone tell me what this sign is about? I found it in a Millennium park in Mile End. There are a few more of the odd sights from the same park (which included an ecology/arts pavilion, many dried fountains, a "green bridge" and a spiral path through some woodlands) over on the flickrstream in the near vicinity of this shot.

Looks a great deal like Isaac Newton. Optics, gravity, apples.
17/20 could be approximate years - 1700's-2000's (Newton died in 1727).

Is that Homer Simpson wearing a judge's wig ?
It does look fairly new. Not one of those Gough's National Heritage ancient monument things then. Part of a new world order plan to turn Earth into another planet of the Zoids ?

a little recent, perhaps ...
Not the same code. However, that links me to omniglot and Thomas More's Utopian alphabet ...

random question
but what resolution do you take your photos in? they all look super high quality. you must use a fair bit of bandwith on flickr. i only have a free account and so can only do a few a month (when i get time)

not especially big
--- 2048 x 1536, just snapshots really. That said, I did use up the bandwidth pretty fast when I was a free user. I got my paid account on some preferential early adopter rates, but I tend to pay for these things anyway -- it's a lot less than I sink in booze or at the cinema, after all ...

I found this site

After some discussion, we found that it's not quite the Utopian alphabet -- and anyway translates as gibberish. Best guess is that the artist either took some liberties, or there was a casting error.
