Ołtarz Wita Stwosza

The Altarpiece of Wit Stwosz (Veit Stoß) in the St. Mary's Basilica (Kościół Mariacki) in Kraków, Poland, with its wing panels closed. The three stained glass windows of the chancel (added in 1365), seen behind the alterpiece, date back to the second half of the 14th century. It has always amazed me how three out of five windows of the chancel have survived intact for turbulent 650 years! Taken by bazylek100
