Architect Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue designed the original Los Angeles Central Library with influences of ancient Egyptian and Mediterranean Revival architecture. The central tower is topped with a tiledmosaic pyramid with suns on the sides with a hand holding a torch representing the “Light of Learning” at the apex. Other elements include sphinxessnakes, and celestial mosaics. It has sculptural elements by the preeminent American architectural sculptor Lee Lawrie, similar to the Nebraska State Capitol in Lincoln, Nebraska, also designed by Goodhue. The interior of the library is decorated with various figures, statues, chandeliers, and grilles, notably a four-part mural by illustrator Dean Cornwell depicting stages of the History of California which was completed around 1933.[3] The building is a designated Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument, and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
