“This Architect is considering his Work both in its whole and in its minor details ; he takes care of it with affection and enthusiasm.
These are 21 stained-glass windows, 1.20m wide, 8 m high. Each one is separated by a very thin concrete structure, representing a cross inside superposed circles. Each circle contains a stained-glass whose design corresponds to one of the 137 stained-glass window of Chartres Cathedral (in France). In the main nave, 18 two-meters-high statues are standing, perfectly integrated into the architectural composition of the columns. These are Gabriel RISPAL’s masterpieces, built in Chauvigny stone.
