Symmetry - Pyramide du Louvre, Paris

The large pyramid is surrounded by three smaller pyramids and serves as the main entrance to the Louvre Museum. It is constructed of glass and metal and was designed by Chinese-American architect I.M. Pei. It has been claimed by some that the glass panes in the Louvre Pyramid number exactly 666, "the number of the beast", often associated with Satan. Actually, it consists of 603 rhombus-shaped and 70 triangular glass segments, so 673 in all.
