Description

This elegant ornament is modeled after the Goddess of Liberty statue that sits atop the Texas Capitol dome. Probably inspired by the statue of Freedom placed on the dome of the National Capitol in 1863, and by publicity about the Statue of Liberty under construction in New York harbor during the 1870s, Texas Capitol architect E. E. Myers designed the statue as the crowning element of the Texas Capitol and included it on his early 1881 competition drawings for the building.

Standing nearly 16 feet tall and weighing approximately 2,000 pounds, the original statue probably represents Pallas Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom, justice, and arts and crafts. Greek and Roman architecture sometimes featured statuary on top of buildings, as well as in them, and renaissance structures patterned after these ancient models often included such statues. Renaissance Revival buildings of the late nineteenth century, like the Texas Capitol, carried on the tradition.

This special ornament is adorned with the Goddess of Liberty towering over a bell of festive holly wreaths, Texas Lone stars, and a sunset-red and gold representation of the Texas State Capitol. The ornament is finished in gold and comes with a replaceable LED light which will make your tree shine. All proceeds support continued preservation of the Texas State Capitol and educational programs. Polish with a soft, dry cloth. Made in the USA.
