Interior of Hennepin County Government Center building, Minneapolis, Minnesota. Through the window can be seen Minneapolis City Hall. Photo taken with 8mm fisheye lens.
The Romanesque rotunda of Minneapolis City Hall), designed by Long and Kees in 1888. The sculpture is "Father of Waters," by American sculptor Larkin Goldsmith Mead who lived in Florence, Italy at the time. According to legend, rubbing his big toe brings good luck. It represents the Mississippi Rive and was placed inside the building in 1906.
In this photo a fisheye lens captures the statue and rotunda, by compressing and distorting the perspective. Or maybe it's surreal view is created by the slightly hypnotic gaze of the Father of Waters.
