Notre Dame, Paris
Rose Window, South Transept
Lester's note: The immense expanse of glass glows on the interior, highlighting the purity and geometrical power of the great circular field. A crucial element in the design of Gothic interiors, stained glass bathes the architecture in colored light which appears to dissolve the weight of the stone. The wheel or rose-shaped circular windows are only used in the centers of the main and transept facades, climaxing the long axial vistas.
