“Man Controlling Horse” At Federal Trade Commission
The Federal Trade Commission on Pennsylvania Ave.
Built in 1938 the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Building is an architectural masterpiece just blocks from the U.S. Capitol on Pennsylvania Ave. Two sculptures stand out and has become an informal logo for the FTC. Michael Lantz designed the allegorical sculptures called “Man Controlling Trade,” with a muscular man as an enforcer, wrestling to control a rearing horse which represents the enormity of trade and the government. The two sculptures sit on the east end of the building.
And its immaculate doors.
