The Library Of Congress is the reference library for the USA’s Congress. It has the world’s largest collection of books, 35 million volumes in over 650 miles (1050 km) of bookshelves.
The Library has been housed since 1897 in a Italian Renaissance-style building near the US Capitol in Washington, D.C.
This image is of the ceiling and its bordering area of one of the ten reading rooms of the library. This one is decorated with a painting labeled ‘Conquest’ and the names of conquerors, explorers and artists from the past.

A different edition of the Multiverse light sculpture by Leo Villareal on the walkway to the East Building at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC! It is a mesmerizing experience to see the LED lights play in the tunnel as you go through it!
