The Grand Reception Hall : Ceiling Murals



The Grand Reception Hall..
Beautiful murals on the ceiling of the Grand Reception Hall..
One would except more information on these..
But I couldn't find any, which is disappointing.
Although there is good enough materials detailing the allegorical murals on the walls of the Grand Reception Hall, as shown in the previous post, click here.... But nothing about the murals on the ceiling.

I am working on details of the ceiling murals - they are also by Eugene Savage and depict the "Feast on Mount Olympus"

Amazing architecture! It seems to be old but best in every manner. I wish I could reserve it in my wedding. But yeah will definitely book this venue for wedding renewal.

Great reception hall Houston TX! This article really seems interesting one. A "reception hall" is a place where people go to celebrate an event, such as a wedding, retirement, birthday. For more see here.
