Wiesbaden, Germany
The Russian Chapel
21 Wiesbaden, Germany

Using the classic colors of medieval stained glass, this medallion juxtaposes the fairytale-like story about the duke and his Orthodox princess with the raw sorrow of a 20th century mother’s loss. By associating the romance and tragedy, and capturing this nameless woman forever reaching for something that cannot be attained or restored, I hoped to create a spiritual image.

When Fred first saw this piece, he became quite emotional. Later on he blessed it.
