'Landing of the Pilgrims, 1620' Relief, U.S. Capitol Rotunda, Washington DC1825 — "Landing of the Pilgrims, 1620" Relief, U.S. Capitol Rotunda, Washington DC
This is one of four reliefs which stand over the four Rotunda doors of the US Capitol Building. It was contributed by the sculptor Enrico Causici. This is not to be confused with the section of the same title in the Rotunda's 360º Historical Painting frieze painted in 1889 by Filippo Costaggini based on sketches by Costantino Brumidi.
