Something I saw

After a Sunday of shopping, I headed back to my friend's place where I'm temporarily staying and passed by this amazing Art Deco eglomise panel...

I don't know that beautiful is the right word, but these panels are definitely amazing in their severity. This building stands at 570 Lexington Avenue and was designed by Cross & Cross and built between 1929-1931. It was built for RCA but later deeded to General Electric before the building was even finished. 
I will definitely want to borrow this motif later on... especially the intertwined lightening bolts.
