Cathedral / Assumptuion

"Our Lady of Maytag"
After driving by this architectural wonder countless times, I took a trip inside.
The kinetic sculpture above the altar is by Richard Lippold. "Alive with reflected light, the 14 tiers of triangular aluminum rods symbolize the channel of love and grace from God to His people, and their prayers and praise rising to him. The sculpture, suspended by gold wires, is 15 stories high and weighs one ton." - Via SF Archdiocese
Even the font for the holy water is cool.
