About the Artwork
In 1999, the Florida House of Representatives commissioned artist Christopher M. Still to create eight murals to hang in its Capitol chambers in Tallahassee. Meticulously researched, each oil-on-linen, 48- by 126-inch painting explores a different era in state history from prehistoric times to the present. Historical background and symbols related to each painting are described at www.christopherstill.com/fl-house-of-reps.
