Saint Mark on Prophet Daniel's shoulders

Just because.

I came across this thin pamphlet about Chartres windows, while cleaning the studio. Dated from 1981, it almost looks like a news letter. The accompanying article is in French by Etienne Charpentier, who might probably be related to Louis Charpentier, who wrote 'the mysteries of chartres catherdral'.

I love the rich blues and the incredibly expressive faces. At first glance, the eyes look really intense. But when you take a second look they are very ovoid and almost too big - and yet, totally riveting.

Simply for your viewing pleasure.
