The purpose of this little guy is to remind us all how different stained-glass looks from outside; how much it relies on the light shining through to make it glow and show its true beauty. I took this from the top of the bell tower at Chartres. Below: top to bottom: Sainte Chapelle Rose Window 2x, Chartres, and a modern window from the International Center. Immediately above, bottom to top: contemporary from Int’l Center, same artist as below; reproduction of classic from Int’l Center, and Chartres.
