The four golden horses on the Minnesota State Capitol building are no longer without their charioteer.
The figure, called Prosperity and one of the signature figures on the Capitol's exterior, was removed in September for corrosion repair and was gilded.
On Wednesday, Prosperity was harnessed and hoisted back into place on the Quadriga – a chariot drawn by four horses abreast – by a crane.

The gold-leafed copper and steel sculpture, called "Progress of the State," was placed on the capitol building in 1906. It was sculpted by Daniel Chester French and Edward Potter, according to the Minnesota Historical Society.
“The four horses represent the power of nature: earth, wind, fire and water. The women symbolize civilization and the man standing on the chariot represents prosperity,” the website said.
The Quadriga was removed from the capitol building for restoration and gilding from 1994-1995, the Pioneer Press notes.
