Notes on the Geography of Great Mirror: Photo 7
The pendentives of the immense rotunda carry figures representing religion on the left and science on the right. (They're fourteen feet in diameter!) The lunette mural between them is "The Spirit of the Vulcan," an appropriate image for the heavy industry on which the state's fortunes were based. All are by Edward Austin Abbey, a Pennsylvanian expatriated to England. The two other rondels, not shown here, are Art and Justice; the three other lunette murals, also not shown here, allude to coal, oil, and--almost an afterthought--religious liberty.
