In the opposite wall...

In the end of June we showed you the stained-glass window from the St. Casimir's church. Today, we come back to this temple in order to present another stained-glass window.

So many crowns. Is there an explanation?

Absolutely great, you did better than yourself last time!

@Cieldequimper - yes, there is an explanation. The person in the stained-glass window is Saint Casimir who was Polish-Lithuanian prince in 15th century and successor to the throne in Poland (so we think this is the reason why there are so many crowns). Unfortunately he died (he had tuberculosis).
More information about Saint Casimir you can find here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Casimir

Saint Casimir is a parton of Poland, Lithuania and young people.

Thanks for all your comments!

I find this most intriguing...it seems so many religious stained glass windows have a lot of red and blues and purples...

This one has more green and "orangish" colors...

It is beautiful, just a bit different from my experience.

This stained glass is beautiful. I like how stained glass photos come out because they make it stand out even more.

Wonderful capture!!!

Hilda said...

Beautiful! The colors are so rich and the patterns so lovely!

I think that's Mary the Queen of Heaven on top, but who's the royal saint?

@Hilda - This is Saint Casimir, Polish-Lithuanian prince from 15th century.
