A Beautiful Historic Building in Washington

Main hall, Department of the Interior, Washington, D.C.

 Inside the Indian Artifact Shop run by the Bureau
of Indian Affairs inside the building. We visited the building
in order to see this shop.
The murals were painted by a native American artist in 1938.
A remarkable historic building with many wonderful art works. 
A ceramic story-teller by Tony Dallas.

Any idea who the artist of the murals is?

@Debra — from the shop’s website the murals in the shop are: “original murals painted in 1938 by the late Allan Houser and the late Gerald Nailor” and in the halls of the building are murals by several others.

I like the murals. That main hall reminds me of Raiders of the Lost Ark.
