workshop of a stone mason?


7 October 1967, France
French Art / stained glass window, St. Madeleine’s Church, Troyes

I thought that I have another chiselling man on a stamp – but the catalogue says “The Window makers”. Well, there is a fire place behind them and you can see a spoon with a long handle – then what is he chiselling?

This panel of stained glass is framed by carved columns and a decorated beam. This church in Troyes was first built in the 12 century, then added to and renovated many times. I wonder when this stained glass was made.
