Map of the World

I love taking pictures of stained glass artworks while in Europe. I can't help but admire the elaborate complexity and artistry.

I spotted this quaint stained glass ceiling depicting map of the world at the four-level underground shopping mall in Moscow. I look on in amazement but I had a slight crick in my neck from looking up too much, trying to capture the best shot of the world map. This may not be perfect but still worth the effort.

  11. That is amazing. I had not heard of a 4 level underground mall before. I know there are malls and offices in tunnels, or subterrain, but 4 levels below ground?
    That too is interesting.

  14. I agree, this is a piece of art. It is fun though, because you see it backwords. It should be seen from above. You were lucky to get almost allof it in one shot. :)

  18. It might not be easy gazing on this map on the ceiling. The map must be huge, I can't imagine the size. Awesome!
