English: Cleisthenes, the father of Greek democracy, reformed traditional Athenian government controlled by ruling tribes into the first government "of the people" (the Demos) democracy. The Cleisthenes Project Committee was initiated by Aristotle Hutras in 2002 to begin the efforts to return to the Statehouse busts of individuals who have become legendary in the development of democratic governance. The first known likeness of Cleisthenes was created by sculptor, Anna Christoforidis. Busts of Cleisthenes and Thomas Jefferson were unveiled on March 24, 2004 in the Ohio House and Senate Chambers.
