I would like to recommend the Antikythera Mechanism as a possible theme

The problem I see here is, without the explanation
most users will just see a geometrical shape and go, huh!
As there will be no text on the graphics.

Methinks that people seeing the Antikythera Mechanism would go like "so they got back to the steampunk theme they scrapped for F10?"

Whereas the columns can be recognised as classical.

I think so, the columns are easier to recognize.
