This little dragon we saw when we were visiting the St. Pierre Cathedral in Geneva. Now, this is something I definitely don’t do often – taking photos of miniature elements, instead of panoramic views or capturing large-scale images. However, as soon as I saw this wooden figurine of a small dragon, I thought it’s an interesting object for a photo.
The structure of the “dome” began in 2007 and was completed 9 months later when the author, artist Miquel Barcelo placed his signature in the middle of the Cupola. Knowing that for this 1,400 square meters of ceiling, they needed 35,000 kilos of paint – this was met with great awe! The art piece on the Cupola is a metaphor of what the United Nations represent.
