This life-sized sculpture depicted the 22-foot Kansas Capitol dome sculpture "Ad Astra" is a gift to the people of Kansas from the Honorable Bill Graves, forty-third governor of Kansas.

It is presented as a proud symbol of our state's heritage, to commemorate the completion of the Kansas Capitol Plaza area, and as a visual reminder to Kansans of our state's motto: Ad Astra Per Aspera - To the Stars Through Difficulties.

Dedicated on November 4, 2002, 136 years after the cornerstone of the Kansas Capitol building was placed 1866.
