The phrase "staring at the ceiling" brings to mind an annoying episode of sleeplessness or possibly a vacant state of mind. Here are some ceilings that could liven up the old expression. Some are colored glass, some wood or molded plaster  strangely enough, one ceiling pictured below is made of over a million iridescent beetles. Whatever the materials, they are spectacular.

The British Museum one is amazing. The picture makes it appear regular and symmetrical, but it ain't. The whole thing is flowing and organic. I remember the space before it was covered, and it's a vast improvment.
