Default Dale Chihouly @ Vegas

I'm sure this photo has come up before. It is from the Chihouly art peice that adorns the lobby of the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas.

I took it a few years ago while my wife and I were waiting for others to go to a real Vegas show(Wayne Newton).

I've never seen that before. What is it composed of? Glass? What an interesting piece.

Isn't that the view you get when you look up at the ceiling while standing in the lobby?

Yes, this is the glass artwork that is in the lobby. The word that I heard is that it cost $10,000,000.00 . If you are ever in Las Vegas it is worth seeing. Also the dancing fountains in front of the Bellagio are quite a show.

Suddenly, I remembered the name, Chilhouly. He's an extremely famous artist, and I even mentioned him a few years ago when I was writing a column about Web sites of clay and glass artists. I'm getting slow-brained.
