I recently had the pleasure of visiting Madison, Wisconsin, and while there I took a few minutes to tour the state’s beautiful capitol building. I enjoy seeing various capitol buildings and previously blogged about my tour of the Indiana State House.
You might not be able to tell from the above photo, but the capitol building is cross-shaped with four wings spreading from the rotunda.
As someone who works on Congress.gov, the mural titled “Legislation,” pictured below, caught my eye. The Wisconsin government website describes it as depicting “a powerful older man with a long beard who holds a stylus in his right hand and is seated by a sphinx symbol of wisdom.”
Their site includes information about visiting the capitol, which I would recommend if you are in Madison.
Do you have a favorite state capitol building?
