115 Quadriga

This gold-leafed copper and steel statuary group, "Progress of the State," was sculpted by Daniel Chester French and Edward Potter and placed on the Capitol in 1906. The four horses represent the power of nature: earth, wind, fire and water. The women symbolize civilization and the man standing on the chariot represents prosperity. From 1994 -1995 the group, also known as the Quadriga, was removed from the capitol building for complete restoration and gilding.
