Inspired by the spectacular glass dome at the Idaho State Museum, I created a free downloadable coloring book page (see below). Do they look like scales or flower petals to you?
Opened in 1910, this stained glass dome was in the center of the Owyhee hotel’s lobby. The Boise newspaper proclaimed that the Owyhee was the “handsomest hotel in the West.” When the Owyhee underwent renovations in the 1970s, its owners donated the dome to the Idaho State Historical Society. Today, it can be seen in the Idaho State Museum.
