Artist's Description

This Neoclassical structure was completed between 1861 and 1874, and is based on the U.S. Capitol building in Washington D.C. The west facade ends in projecting bays, and a portico projects from the center of the building. At the base of the portico, seven granite archways brace and support the porch above. Eight fluted Corinthian columns line the portico. A cornice supports the pediment above depicting Minerva surrounded by Education, Justice, and Mining. Above the flat roof with balustrade are two drums supporting a dome. The first drum consists of a colonnade of Corinthian columns; the second, Corinthian pilasters. Large arched windows line the drum walls. The dome is 64 m (210 ft) high, matching that of the U.S. Capitol, and supports a lantern with a smaller dome capped with a gold-leafed orbed finial. —(excerpt from Wikipedia Article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_State_C... )

(Note that the flags were half-mast that day – August 9, 2012 – as a Mark of Respect for the Victims of the Tragedy at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin).
