|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.
