“Dome of Light” is a massive glass installation, in fact the largest public art installation all over the world, located at the Taiwan’s Formosa Boulevard underground station. The station, which is the busiest stations along Taiwan’s Kaohsiung Mass Rapid Transit system, gained 2nd place in the top 15 most beautiful train stations in the world.
The Dome’s author, Narcissus Quagliata, put it together in a little less than four years, which including shipping art pieces of colored glass directly from Germany. The amazing art piece spans a 30-meter diameter, as visitors walk around, views of story of human life, transitioning from the section that represents water, the womb of life, to earth, which embodies the act of growing and prospering are to be seen. There are also sections on light and fire, the latter representing on the one hand destruction and on the latter rebirth. The main message that pervades the dome, however, is one of love and tolerance.
