I love these cut away shots-isn't this gorgeous? The Pennsylvania state capitol rotunda is a magnificent example a combination of various artistic techniques and mediums working together for a massive impact. The first thing we noticed after a long and circuitous route to get to the rotunda was the dominant color theme of red, white, and blue. Stunning but not surprising given the role of Pennsylvania in the establishment of America's independence. The detail is simply mesmerizing.
Sadly, during our visit most of the artifacts were put away as much of the capitol building was in the midst of a restoration project. In any event, it's a quick stop and definitely worth a visit.
