15 Constantino Brunidi: The Apotheosis of George Washington, 1865 Americans are everywhere given the message that they can look up to George Washington, but for those who walk through the Rotunda of the Capitol, the figurative becomes literal. Gazing upward to the dome, one sees Washington floating far overhead, a life-sized and heavenly vision. Constantino Brunidis "The Apotheosis of George Washington" looms above. The old General and first President sits in majesty, flanked on the right by the Goddess of Liberty and on his left by a winged figure of Fame sounding a trumpet and holding a palm frond aloft in a symbol of victory. Thirteen female figures stand in a semi-circle around Washington, representing the thirteen original states. On the outer ring of the canopy, six allegorical groupings surround him, representing classical images of agriculture, arts and sciences, commerce, war, mechanics, and marine.
