Heroines of the Dome

It was Robert Watchorn’s desire that upon entering the Shrine the attention of the visitor would be drawn to the prominent Carrara marble bust of Lincoln by noted sculptor George Grey Barnard. Above this bust would be a series of murals, affixed to the dome of the Shrine. These Viagra 100mg heroic female figures, or “the better angels of our nature” as Lincoln would call them, depict the aspects of Lincoln’s character that contributed to his success as President.

The heroines of the dome portray Strength, Loyalty, Faith, Courage, Tolerance, Patience, Wisdom, and Justice.
