Extraordinary Detail Of The Capitol Cupola, Colonial Williamsburg, Williamsburg, Virginia



The Capitol in Colonial Williamsburg contains exquisite detail. The first photo shows the cupola, complete with crowned weather vane, goldleafed clock, windows, and handpainted insignia. The second photo is a close up of the insignia bearing the motto of Queen Elizabeth I, "Semper Eadem" or "Always The Same."
