In 1938, Sergeant-at-Arms Dwight Dwinell carved a statue of the Roman goddess of agriculture to adorn the dome of the Vermont Statehouse. For 80 years the statue, now known as "Ceres II," stood watch over the capitol before being replaced in 2018. Her head is now the centerpiece of a new exhibit featuring remnants of Larkin Mead’s original 1859 statue, carving tools and period photography. The body of the statue will join the exhibit once its conservation and stabilization are complete.
