Fiori Di Como

This is the ceiling in the lobby of the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. It is breathtaking. Created by glass blowing God, Dale Chihuly, it has over two thousand hand blown pieces. Amazing. I knew when I took this picture that it would in no way do the piece justice, but I had to try to capture the beauty.

What a great picture. I bet it was amazing to look at in person.

Thanks for posting the site, I looked at some of his things and enjoyed them very much. Will have to go back later and look at more.

Hugs Suz

I needed that reminder as well.. simply to be.

Chihuly IS amazing! When I was in Oklahoma City last summer, I was able to see an exhibit of his at the OKC art museum. They also have a glass tower in their lobby he did. Amazing, amazing things!
