Iowa State Seal Illustrated by Steven Noble

Iowa State Seal Illustrated by Steven Noble

Iowa State commissioned Steven Noble to illustrate their new state seal. The seal includes many historical symbols that connect to Iowa's rich history that depicts a citizen soldier standing in a wheat field surrounded by symbols important in early historical Iowa, including farming, mining, and transportation with the Mississippi River in the background. An eagle overhead bears the state motto. The ilustration was created by hand in pen and ink in separate parts including the main circular seal section and surrounding border elements.
