Utah Capitol Chandelier and Murals

We're going back to Utah and the state capitol with this shot...  Here is an angle of the chandelier that hangs down from the top of the rotunda in the center of the capitol.  And all around are these great murals that depict various events in Utah state history.  The main one you see here on the left is titled, "Peace with the Indians September 1852", depicting a time when the Mormons brokered a peace treaty with the local Native Americans, as stated on page three of "The Historical Structures Report" from the State of Utah.  The one to the right of that and a bit obscured by the light is called "Pony Express and the Stagecoach" and the one on the far right is called "General Connor Inaugurates Mining."  They are all rather extraordinary and really make the capitol a worthwhile place to visit.
