Betty Ray McCain
Betty Ray McCain, former North Carolina Secretary of Cultural Resources. Recently photographed for the NC Museum of History in front of a statue of George Washington. It is a 1970 copy of Antonio Canova's original statue of George Washington, which had been displayed in the original State House from 1820-1831. Canova sought to honor and even glorify Washington by depicting him in a Roman general's uniform with tunic, tightly-fitting body armor, and short cape fastened at the shoulder.
