Long Description:
From the cathedral's website (visit link) .

"The limestone and architectural concrete structure is 172 feet in length, 128 feet wide, and 106 feet high. The most impressive feature of the Cathedral is the central dome, which is 100 feet in diameter. It's exterior is covered with 1/4 inch square Venetian glass tiles made of 22 karat gold fused in glass. The dome's interior portrays a mosaic of the Pantocrator (Christ, the Almighty ruler). The dome seemingly rests on 32 windows, depicting the coat of arms of regions of Ukraine, and the popes, bishops and religious orders who contributed to the growth of the Ukrainian Catholic church in the United States. The zig-zag design seen in the windows above the arches is a wheat motif."
