No, this is the stunning ceiling at the Belliago Hotel. As the final picture in my Las Vegas series I thought I would show you this amazing work of art. The glass sculpure is created by Dale Chihuly. Chihuly states that Steve Wynn talked to him about making the art piece for the Bellagio before construction had even begun on the Hotel. He wanted a spectacular piece for the lobby. Back in Seattle the artist built the entire 70 x 30 foot ceiling, full scale in his studio. The commission, as contracted called for a whole new armature type and about 1000 new "flowers." When FIORI DI COMO was finally installed there were over 2000 handblown glass elements.
Google Dale Chihuly to see all his fabulous art work and some videos of works in progress.
