The entrance to the Ohio Judicial Center is every bit as lovely as the Ohio Supreme Court courtroom.
Many busy attorneys hurrying to an oral argument no doubt scurry through the entrance without looking around — or looking up. Those who fail to do so are missing something, because the ceiling above the entrance sparkles with colorful, carefully inlaid tile work (show above), and the doorways feature beautiful, finely detailed metal gate-like doors (shown below). How much time did it take for the master craftsmen who were involved to place the tiles or do the metalwork that produced such striking pieces?
When people talk about making a grand entrance, this must be what they are talking about.
