This is one of the best covers of all time:
Ah, yes, Whelan's cover for the paperback edition of Foundation's Edge. Never did have any idea what the cover meant in relation to the novel's story. Doesn't stop me from loving it, though.

Symbolic...covers don't have to be specific scenes. It makes man and his works pale in comparison to time and the universe...evoking images of failed empires such as Rome.

I always figured/thought that it was basically showing Trevize as the Lightning Rod... with the whole galaxy basically going to follow his decision.

Of course, that's after finishing/reading the story.

But yes -- in either case, highly symbolic and a great cover.
