Pittsburgh Picture of the Day
Wow. That's what I first thought when I saw this ceiling--the ceiling!-- over the main staircase at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh Main Library in Oakland. There are lovely touches like this all over this building and I'm so lucky to work in a historically beautiful building as this! It is a painting that looks like you're looking up at the clouds in the sky! I'm not quite sure but those may or may not be pineapples (I'll have to look it up!) on the edge which mean "welcome." And just look at the molding. The little rounded arches you see below are the tops of windows.
