Images of George Washington Zeus Statue Mentioned in The Lost Symbol

I’ve been getting many emails requests for more images of the George Washington Zeus Statue mentioned in The Lost Symbol. Please keep in mind, I hadn’t read the book when these pictures were taken, but I felt this need to take pictures of it from different angles.

The statue itself is located in the Smithsonian Museum of American History, where such cool items like The Ruby Slippers, The Star Spangled Banner, and Julia Child’s Kitchen can also be found. I even spied C3PO from Star Wars hanging around the museum.

    Why was GW portrayed in the manner in which we see him in this statue? Are there any hidden meanings or was this simply a way of honoring the man for his many contributions to the United States?
