  2. The wiki hint gave it away...
    The image is The Fields Medal-a prize awarded to two, three, or four mathematicians not over 40 years of age at each International Congress of the International Mathematical Union, a meeting that takes place every four years(copied from wiki:)).
    The man in the picture is Archimedes
    It means-To transcend one's human limitations and master the universe
