(1992 & 2008) Bronze Chandeliers "A closer look at the grand chandeliers created by the Sterling Bronze Company for Vanderbilt Hall and the Main Concourse reveals countless acorns and oak leaves, symbols of the Vanderbilt family."
I like the way the form and counter-form work together. The oak leaf and acorn work nicely to create a serif "V" with a heavier stroke on one side of the "V". credit: http://richlandcreekrun.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/vanderbilt-logo2.jpg

Decorative Detail "Many sculptural details by Sylvain Saliéres incorporate symbols representing the Vanderbilt crest and family motto, “Great oaks from little acorns grow.” Acorns and oak leaves abound (right). The Main Concourse lunettes (moon-shaped arches above the windows), photographed in 1998, feature oak leaves intertwining a winged wheel representing transportation (left)."
