Drawing of the Building of Vatican

Drawing of the Building of Vatican Social Studies Philosophy Legends and Legendary People

From the U.S. Library of Congress, we learn that:

This image of an engraving which shows the Vatican still under construction, the dome unfinished, and gives a good sense of the scale and duration of the undertaking. 

The original engraving, by A. Lafréry, called Speculum Romanae magnificentiae' in 1555, is maintained by the Vatican Library.
