    President Joe Biden has given the Oval Office a slight makeover.

    Biden revealed the new décor Wednesday as he invited reporters into his new office to watch him sign a series of executive orders hours after he took office.

    A bust of Cesar Chavez, the labor leader and civil rights activist, is nestled among an array of framed family photos displayed on a desk behind the new president. Also represented in sculptures are civil rights icons Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks.

    Benjamin Franklin peers down at Biden from a portrait on a nearby wall.

    Biden brought a dark blue rug out of storage to replace a lighter colored one installed by former President Donald Trump.

    One office feature remains: Biden is also using what’s known as the Resolute Desk because it was built from oak used in the British Arctic exploration ship HMS Resolute.

    Trump used that desk, too.
