Crowning the dome of the Texas State Capitol stands the Goddess of Liberty statue with Texas and USA flags flying below.jpg
Based on Greek and Roman architectural details, the Goddess of Liberty was designed by Detroit's Elijah E. Myers, architect of the Texas Capitol, and was included in his original contest drawings submitted in 1881. The Texas Goddess is probably based on similar 19th century statues of the Greek goddess Athena and represents truth, justice, and art. Standing sixteen feet high, the original Goddess was installed on top of the Texas Capitol in late February, 1888 - Stock image
