52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 9 – Patterns

The Girl That Deams Awake has set the topic of ‘Patterns’ for this week.

Most stained glass windows display overtly religious images. However, this example, to be found in the crypt of the medieval church in the French village of Gargilesse, is an interesting exception.

The geometric patterns remind me of Celtic designs (Celtic knots?). I’m also reliably informed – by Madame the quilter (a.k.a. The Best Girl Ever) – that there are very similar quilting patterns.

In another departure from tradition, the colours are far more subdued than in typical stained glass windows.
