Vermont Capitol Dome

Vermont State Capitol Dome

There was a recent article in the local paper showing how the interior of the dome was constructed. It is pretty amazing. Long wooden ribs from the base to the top curve upward. Short wooden planks join the ribs around the dome. This is copper jacketed. Then it was gilded to make the golden dome. At the top is a statue named Agriculture, a reference to the greek goddess Ceres.
