\Cy`clo*ra"ma\ (s?`kl?-r?"m? or -r?"m?), n. [Cyclo- +
Gr. "o`rama sight, spectacle.]
A pictorial view which is extended circularly, so that the
spectator is surrounded by the objects represented as by
things in nature. The realistic effect is increased by
putting, in the space between the spectator and the picture,
things adapted to the scene represented, and in some places
only parts of these objects, the completion of them being
carried out pictorially.
