The American pantheon

The National Statuary Hall Collection:

The National Statuary Hall Collection in the United States Capitol is composed of statues donated by individual states to honor persons notable in their history. Originally set up in the old Hall of the House of Representatives, renamed National Statuary Hall, the expanding collection has since been spread throughout the Capitol.

About two thirds of them are politicians. There is one artist, and only a handful of writers.

There is also a king.
