Quadriga - Gold horses, Minnesota State Capitol

Minnesota turned 150 on Sunday, becoming the 32nd state on May 11, 1858. This is a picture of the Quadriga, "The Progress of the State" (Daniel Chester French) on the front of the Minnesota State Capitol which is a man in a chariot, two women and four horses representing the elements: earth, fire, water and air. The women represent industry and agriculture, and the man represents prosperity.
