The Rotunda

I like this part of the Legislative Assembly Building very much, mostly I think because of its sumptuous colors and generous gold leaf. In the photo above we are looking almost directly upward to the central dome. You may find it easier to orient yourself in the photo below, taken from the same place but looking across the rotunda instead of upwards. "SPLENDOR SINE OCCASU" is the provincial motto and is translated as, "Splendor without diminishment".

The inside of the Leg. Bldgs. is magnificent. My fave are the stained glass windows with the northwest animals and the one for Queen Elizabeth.
