Above the southern entrance to the building is a gilded quadriga called The Progress of the State which was sculpted by Daniel Chester French and Edward Clark Potter. It was completed and raised to the roof of the capitol in 1906. The four horses represent the power of nature: earth, wind, fire and water. I was lucky to be able to climb the spiral staircase and take a selfie. Also Reprentative McDonald took pictures of all the GOP Representatives and video with a really nice drone.
