    Flanked by Liberty and Victory in female form, George Washington ascends to the heavens and is transformed into a god in a 4,664-square-foot (433-square-meter) fresco painted on the ceiling of the U.S. Capitol's inner dome in Washington, D.C. This painting is called "The Apotheosis of Washington".

    Called as 'The Jungle', the giant, fan-shaped traveler's palm housed in the U.S. Botanic Garden on the grounds of the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C..

And one more, as you may have watched National Treasure movie, the US Dollar bill appears and mentioned again Dan Brown's novel. The Great Seal of the United States' all-seeing "Eye of Providence"—like the pyramid, a symbol adopted by Freemasons—stares from the back of the U.S. dollar bill. To some of the society's detractors, the symbol is proof of a powerful Masonic conspiracy with its roots in the founding of the United States.
