Worth a Thousand Words: Gorgeous Stained Glass

Domestic window by Dirck Crabeth for the house of Adriaen Dircxz. van Crimpen, of Leiden. (1543)
via Wikipedia
Van Crimpen was a member of the government. The scenes show seven scenes from the First Book of Samuel in the Old Testament and five scenes from the Acts of the Apostles. Though the house is still standing, the stained glass is now in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.
Father Pitt featured some stained glass and it prompted my wanderings through the world of stained glass art on the internet where I found this superb piece. Isn't this lovely? Wouldn't you love to be able to look at it every day in your own home? (First, of course, I'd have to have a home worthy of it. But still ...)
