A section of the Fiori di Como, the extraordinary chandelier that hangs from the 18-foot ceiling of the lobby at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. Created by famed Seattle glass sculptor Dale Chihuly, this stunning glass piece weighs 40,000 pounds and is made up of 2,000 hand-blown glass flowers. Fiori di Como means "Flowers of Como," a lake in Italy where a hotel was said to have inspired the Bellagio. Fiori di Como also holds the record for being the world's largest glass sculpture.
