Today's Flowers #31: Flowers of The Dome of Light


Grace' father and we took the bullet train headed south from Taipei to visit Tainan and Kaoshiung this Saturday, March 14, 2009.  One of the major attraction in Kaoshiung was to visit and photograph "The Dome of Light" at the main station of Kaoshiung Rapid Transit.  


This is the second such structure created by Italian Maestro Narcissus Quagliata.  The first one was finished in 2000 for Vatican.   "The Dome of Light" of Kaoshiung Rapid Transit, which finished in 2008, is 660 square meter in size and was assembled using 4500 pieces of window glass.


It was certainly impressive when viewed in person under the dome.  Here we show some of the details of the window glass with flower images.
