One of four niche sculptures in the rotunda. Architect Richard Kletting had recommended four allegorical sculptures when he designed the building. It was only during the $227 million restoration project of 2004 - 2008, that his vision was finally realized. The young animal is a Rocky Mountain Elk, the State animal. There's that beehive again.

Thank goodness that they followed through with Kletting's plans. Based on its title, this would probably bee (pun intended!) my favorite niche! :-) Nicely framed shot and I love how the sculpture stands out in the niche.
