Charles Niehaus created two of the statues in the state capitol rotunda, the statues of statesman, Henry Clay, and Ephraim McDowell, a frontier physician. These two statues are actually painted plaster models for the bronze cast statues that represent Kentucky in Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol Building.
