Sigmar Polke's Agate Windows


Just found these windows designed by Sigmar Polke for Zurich's Grossmunster cathedral. They are made from slices of agates arranged in the window. The colors, the biological fecundity of the agates, pulsing like bacteria growing with life, or stars forming in nebulae, a transcept of creation ... I am blown away.

It's so beautiful!! What a wonderful thing to make. I've seen photos of the other windows too, I don't know when they were made but they are just brilliant!
Kind regards
