14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Restoration of the Rhode Island Statehouse Dome, Depicting Roger Williams meeting the Indians - 9/16/16
A mural of Roger Williams peacefully greeting the Indians on a hill close to the R.I. Statehouse. Other tradesmen and women are depicted with samples of their work around the inside of the R.I. Dome of the Statehouse. The mural was restored this Summer due to water damage. The scaffolding was the most expensive part of the project. I photographed the work, with the scaffolding in place, to document the work that was done.
