Doors to the Original Senate Chamber, by Lee Lawrie.

These were carved by Keats Lorenz, and later polychromed. The designs come from examples of American Indian relics owned by Hartley Burr Alexander.  The doors were carved from mahogany, and weigh several hundred pounds each. They are reinforced with bolts running the vertical length of them, to help preserve their shape and prevent sagging. Photo credit is a scan from the book Sculpture by Lee Lawrie, a 1936 folio published by J. H. Jansen of Cleveland, from the collection of the webmaster.  Due to the delicate nature of the book, I chose not to force the page onto the scanner.
