47 Rose Window inside Metropolitan Cathedral in Fortaleza, Brazil

A classic feature of Gothic architecture for cathedrals is a large rose window filled with intricate and colorful stained glass. Architect George Maunier did a masterful job of creating a beautiful example inside St. Joseph’s Cathedral in Fortaleza, Brazil. In the center is the image of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Notice the heart is pierced by swords. These represent the Seven Sorrows (or Dolors) of Mary. Surrounding her are equally gorgeous images of angels.
