Artist's Description

The Wade Chapel, erected in 1901, is unique in that it features not only Jewish and Christian influences, but also Islamic principles. This gigantic lantern is craved from one piece of ivory. The entire interior was designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany of New York. When the chapel was completed, all of Cleveland aristocracy threw a big party to commemorate the finishing. Louis Comfort Tiffany came, he was fashionably and it is said typically, fifteen minutes late. He walk up the center aisle, passed all of the Cleveland notables at the time: the Wades, the Rockefellers, the Mathers. Said nothing to know one. He stared at the chapel altar for a few seconds and stated “I am thoroughly satisfied” then walked back out. Still saying nothing to any individual. He never came back and returned to New York.
