Part 12 - Virtual Tour of the Legislative Chamber
The chamber interior reflects the taste of the late Victorians.
The hand-blocked frieze, at the point where the chamber walls meet the ceiling, features the
Anthemion leaf motif and is colored in red-based tones with accents of olive, cream, metallic gold
and copper, representing the influence of ancient Greece. The mid-point border is a Greek key
design widely used in Victorian buildings and found in historical photographs of this room. This motif
is also repeated on the pilasters of the vestibule and hallway.
Visit the upper chamber or the lower chamber.
