As mentioned yesterday, the ceiling of the Columbus room is beyond compare.

Here you can see the intricacy of the work. Imagine that every tile has to be designed, then created, before it can be embedded in the form that will eventually be the ceiling. They also use a lot of words as you can see. The whole thing is just amazing.
Also, that floor is very hard, I can tell you that.
