Tiffany Glass Dome at the Driehaus Museum in Chicago

The stained glass dome design depicts four trees, the trunks of which arch towards the oculus of the dome, while their leaves, rendered in autumnal colored drapery glass, form a canopy against a turquoise sky. Each lay-light panel features a central area of green and white striated glass, framed by a band of drapery glass leaves, in turn framed by a border of emerald green drapery glass.
