Center Pediment - Genius of America

Genius of America was originally carved in sandstone by Luigi Perisco in 1828. When the East Front was extended in 1958-1962, the badly deteriorated figures were replaced by replicas carved in marble. America, at the center holds a shield. She points to Justice, holding scales and a scroll marked "Constitution, 17 September 1787." To the right is the figure of Hope with an anchor.
