The Capitol dome rises 106 feet above the state seal in the floor of the spacious rotunda. The ceiling, painted by Frank H. Schwarz, features a design of thirty-three stars symbolizing Oregon as the thirty-third state in The Union. A 1993 earthquake caused significant damage to the dome. Extensive renovation closed it for an extended period. The work included cleaning and paint restoration to both the dome and the murals.
