Raising The Chandelier

On Thursday, January 17, I had the rare privilege of watching the chandelier in the  rotunda  of the Minnesota State Capitol being raised and lit.  It was at the level of the second floor and was raised to the top of the dome in a matter of minutes.  The chandelier weighs over one ton and is decorated with over 38,000 crystal beads   The chandelier had been taken down while repair and improvements were made to the dome.
