Three Kings' Window / Speculum Window

Posted by MadScientist (Düsseldorf, Germany) on 23 August 2011 in Art & Design.

These two windows in the space of one tracery are depicting the Epiphany and the Passion events respectively. Both windows were done in the late 15th century and can be found in the choir of Munich's Frauenkirche.

Three images stitched together; not my best work. Especially the upper parts were extremely difficult to capture.

A masterpiece all round here . . what an enterprise this is - and that's just the photography !

Bis der Aminus-Server das Ding aufgebaut hat, ist´s Frühstückszeit und ich muss auf Schicht *fg*

Geiles Bild! Das warten hat sich gelohnt.
