Jellyfish

The ceiling of the Bellagio lobby in Las Vegas. To put it in perspective, each of these "jellyfish/flowers" are anywhere from 1' to 3' feet around and made of very thick hand-blown glass.

 

Amazing spectacle.

 

More info on the artist, Dale Chihuly, and the installation, called Fiori Di Como, can be found here.

 

Update: This was one of Flickr's most interesting photos on 05/04/05.
