The Kansas official motto is Ad astra per aspera, “To the stars through difficulties.” Atop the State's capitol building in Topeka is a bronze statue of a Kansa warrior nicknamed , Ad Astra. The statue, sculpted by Kansas artist Richard Bergen, was placed on top of the dome of the building in 2002. It measures 22 feet, 2 inches tall and weighs 4,420 pounds. The Kansa people, for whom the state takes its name, contributed to the history of Kansas. The warrior faces toward the North Star, a symbol of finding one’s way.
