Palace of Argentine Congress Sculptures in Balvanera, Buenos Aires, Argentina

The exterior of Palacio del Congreso resembles a sculpture gallery. Argentine artist Lola Mora created 16 magnificent statues. Flanking the Entrada de Honor (Honor Entrance) are two marble ensembles representing Peace, Justice, Liberty and Progress. They were reproduced in 2014. She crafted additional pieces for the interior. High above the pediment and below the green dome is a 26 foot high, bronze quadriga. This equestrian chariot driven by Victoria, the Roman goddess of victory, was the work of Victor de Pol. Art buffs will also want to see an original cast of Auguste Rodin’s The Thinker at Mariano Moreno Plaza in front of the Palace of Argentine National Congress.
