Notes This monumental relief sculpture was commissioned by the state for the senate chamber as a Lewis and Clark bicentennial commemoration. The project was overseen by MHS in conjunction with the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Commission and a special selection committee. The mural was installed in the senate in October 2006 and officially dedicated at the beginning of the 2007 session. Depiction of the Lewis and Clark party in the Missouri Breaks area. Sacajawea is the center-most figure. Lewis (seated on a crate) and Clark (standing, with sextant) dominate the left third of the image. The right third of the image is comprised of men loading pirogues. York stands holding a barrell, while Seaman stares expectantly at him. In the background, other boats sail up river. There is a 1-3/4" high border that runs across the bottom of the image. This border contains a bitterroot in the very center, four different animals on either side of the bitterroot, and depictions of four native plants on either side of the animals.
