Union Station's gold-gilded main foyer, Washington, DC

Apparently, some seventy-pounds of 22-karat gold leaf adorns the barrel-vaulted ceiling 96 feet above the floor at Union Station. Being as gold leaf expands to 20,000 times it's original size when hammered out (or machined) this figure may be on the high-side of estimates, but anything is possible I suppose.
