Here's my Capitol visit #12 , one of the finest examples of 19th Century American architecture. This 1886 structure is unique with 5 domes, the central one covered with gold leaf. Inside is amazingly colorful. You can climb the spiral staircase to the top balcony over the rotunda overlooking paintings, sculpture, mosaics, fine craftsmanship with 12 types of wood and 29 kinds of marble.
Besides a unique unicameral legislature, this Capitol showcases everything from pre-historic dinosaurs to the history of man, to recognizing congressional Medal of Honor recipients. Begun in 1922, work continues to make the structure even more magnificent.
This huge Capitol building did not have a dome until 2002. However it had an oil well on the grounds for decades. Instead of a painting, each governor gets a bust and one has already been sculpted for the current one Mary Fallin.
Loving this color right now while transitioning from Summer to Fall. It's a hypnotizing bronze with metallic brownish red (swear it looks slightly purple when the light hits it) & gold flecks. #nailpolish from #covergirl#thecapitolcollection inspired by The Hunger Games, #catchingfire
Comunque nonostante la banda mi abbia svegliato alle sette e mezza del mattino, non posso non gioire per l'esagerata quantità di canzoni natalizie di Sinatra che sono il mood di ogni anno. #Sinatra#TheCapitolCollection#TheChristmasWaltz
@covergirl "Inferno" from The Capitol Collection (inspired by The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) ••• I absolutely love this! It's a maroon-red with gold and bronze shimmer. Perfect for a fire inspired polish.
