While you’re checking out the newly reopened Canadian Museum of Nature, don’t forget to notice the new glass “lantern” which is officially called the Queens’ Lantern.

The new name was proclaimed late last month during an unveiling of a plaque at the museum by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and His Royal Highness, the Duke of Edinburgh during their visit. The name pays homage to both Queen Elizabeth II, and to her great-great grandmother, Queen Victoria, whom the Victoria Memorial Museum commemorates.

The lantern is made from 160 panes of face glass and 120 pieces of glass fins.
