Photographer's Note

The State of Idaho's capitol building in Boise was completed in 1920. It's design is inspired by notable Romanesque styles, especially the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. There are 219 columns of all styles.

There is over 50,000 square feet of marble from various places. A composite type was also used -'Scagliola' which is a mixture of granite, marble dust, gypsum and glue, then dyed to look like marble.
