Golden Ceiling

This is the ceiling in the rotunda of the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum) just inside the newly restored entrance on University Ave. The mosaic is composed of a million squares of Venetian glass which were individually cut from thousands of larger sheets of glass. The words in the middle say "May all men know his work".

a good picture of that beautiful ceiling. It’s ornate without being ostentatious, if that makes sense (I know what I mean anyway ))).
