GODDESS LIBERTY EAGLE AND SERPENT by 44NATHAN GODDESS LIBERTY EAGLE AND SERPENT by 44NATHAN
THE GODDESS LIBERTY, BALD EAGLE AND SERPENT

The goddess originally stood above the Speaker's desk when the House of Representatives met in this room.

Liberty holds the Constitution of the United States in her right hand, with the bald eagle standing below. To her left a serpent, the symbol of wisdom, is entwined around a section of a fasci.

Cool. Thank you for making a study of the symbolism. We see these Classic revival monuments all over the place in England, America, and the Commonwealth countries, but we know little of the classical and Helenic background, many of us.
