Theme Day: Details
For the October theme, I chose some of the architectural details of our State Capitol building starting with the wind vane on top of the building. It is an actual wind vane that turns on its pedestal with the changing winds. It was fashioned after Nike, the Greek Goddess of victory. In the wild west days, cowboys would shoot at her winds just to see it turn.
Above the entrance to the building there is some very fancy scroll work that is quite attractive. It's just about the only thing attractive about our rather plain capitol building. You can see a photo of the whole building here.
