- The Nuttall Encyclopedia

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.
