The Apotheosis of George Washington

William Henry has done an excellent job of reinterpreting the art and symbolism in the Capital Dome described as a 'temple of liberty'. The Vatican ordained art on the ceiling should prompt thinking people to question why they would use such an apotheosis religious theme for a secular building, and why the Vatican selected painter Constantino Brumidi would be accompanying the Mayan calendar carved into the walls considering the same Vatican despatched Spanish armies to crush that part of the world and secure all their ancient knowledge to be locked away under St Peter's Bassilica and never shared with us.

Are many Americans even aware of the mystery figure that harangued the divided founding fathers to sign the declaration of independence?
