stained glass,

Stained-glass waterfall

Inside Tholey Abbey. All the stained glass windows there were designed by Robert Köck around 1958 and depict scenes from the books of Exodus and Genesis. More photos can be seen on the Abbey web site - Benediktinerabtei St. Mauritius zu Tholey.

    Yes. The human world always obeys these words.

    Your works are seen on such "the way", too.

    Thank you.

  3. Looks a bit gloomy. Maybe because of almost monochrome palette.
