The Rotunda at the US Capitol Building

Some shots of the United States Capitol Building inside the main chamber looking up at the rotunda. The murals are really high up, so its hard to see the details. The tour guide pointed out that one of the artists, Filippo Constaggini  painted his face into the base of the tree trunk in the Frieze of American History. I used my 300mm zoom to get in close. Constaggini's signature was is very elaborate as well, tucked behind a fern.

Washington looks very kingly in this shot holding a sword glaring down at the viewers.
