A magnificent chandelier hangs under the dome of the main entrance of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the world's largest museum of decorative arts and design. The great blue, green and yellow explosion in glass looks some sort of a living organism – perhaps a giant squid with writhing tentacles, a characteristic trademark of its sculptor, the American Dale Chihuly, who has designed similar sculptures elsewhere. But the chandelier at Scotts Square is easily his most recognized work. The chandelier was first installed in 1999, at which time, it was more modest. But Chihuly decided it needed to be bigger and enlarged it so that it now fills the central rotunda at the entrance to the museum.
