The original copper dome installed by Paul Revere is covered with 23K gold leaf.

For me it looks somehow oriental... even Paul Revere was responsible.

They don't make them like they used to!

You get a good view of the dome if you watch the film 'The Departed'.

Looking at it now, I should probably have straightened the picture a little.
