Pic of the Week, March 13, 2015: Fiori di Como, The Bellagio

28 Bellagio 2015 chandelier

Las Vegas is well known for its glitzy and glamorous megaresorts.  Of these, the Bellagio resort stands out for its beautiful architecture and art.  Famous for its musical fountain show on the Strip and its wonderful Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, the Bellagio resort also has a noteworthy chandelier in its lobby that’s impossible to miss and deserves close study.

Known as Fiori di Como, this beautiful glass sculpture was crafted by famous artisan, Dale Chihuly, whose studio is in Seattle.  Comprised of 2,000 hand -blown glass “blossoms”, these colorful plates have been carefully arranged to form an elaborate three dimensional mosaic.  This work of art was installed in 1998 and has been enjoyed by millions.
