Looking up to the TOP of the state capitol of Utah in Salt Lake City, for Becky’s April Squares: #SquareTops
We visited the Utah state capitol in Salt Lake City in June of 2018. Here are more views of the capitol building.
Side view, which is where you enter
I don’t know why the sculptor of this lion made his right paw different from his left. Perhaps it was a nod to the Lincoln statue in Washington D.C., with one of his hands in a fist to symbolize strength.
View of the Rockies from the capitol
On the grounds were buffalo painted with different designs and colors.
Seal of the state of Utah in the rotunda
We took a tour – this is one of the elegant state rooms they showed us.
Statues representing different parts of society were in niches around the rotunda.
Symmetrical designs on the marble walls – the builders matched up marble panels to make symmetry.
