Église Saint-Gervais-et-Saint-Protais - Stained Glass by Jean Chastellain, France

Detail from "The Wisdom of Solomon" by Jean Chastellain in the Chapel of the Virgin at the back of the church which has a dramatic late gothic vaulted ceiling, featuring a hanging crown of stone 2.5 meters in diameter, and abstract designs resembling flames. This chapel has some of the oldest stained glass windows in the flamboyant gothic style made by Jean Chastellain in 1517, illustrating the life of the Virgin Mary.
