Dôme Central, interior

Joseph Antoine Bouvard, architect

View to the left of the entrance door into the Gobelins tapestry manufacturing section. The frieze by Lavastre and Carpezat shows the people of the world arriving at the Champs-de-Mars in their national costumes. The four corners of the dome were supported on piers with medallions designating steam, electricity, air, and water.
