Republic, the classical, white-robed figure in the center may have been adapted from Marianne—the French symbol of reason, liberty, and ideals of a republic. Republic holds a triangle—a symbol for order, balance, and moderation. Next to her is Minerva, a Roman goddess of wisdom, poetry, medicine, and commerce. The artist indicated that these two figures together represent the American government.
