Goddess of Freedom
This focus is a colorized image of the statue Armed Freedom by Thomas Crawford, a neoclassical sculptor. The statue was commissioned around 1855 to stand upon the Capitol dome. Crawford passed on in 1857, shortly after completing his model of Armed Freedom. Clark Mills, another American artist, cast the statue between 1860 and 1863 in a foundry just three miles from the Capitol. Though the Civil War had broken out in 1861, President Lincoln is known to have insisted that work on the Capitol dome—to him a symbol of national solidarity—continue. Finally, on December 2, 1863, Armed Freedom was enshrined atop the Capitol dome. The President watched as the last section was raised into place, and the event was heralded by a 35-gun salute.
I AM Mother. I AM Mother in all of life. I came to be enshrined in America upon the insistence of the great patriarch, exponent of the Father and the Law and the principle, your own Abraham Lincoln. It was he who determined that the statue of Armed Freedom should be erected even in the dark hours of the Civil War. - Goddess of Freedom (Pearl of Wisdom Vol. 44 No. 20.
