Gian Lorenzo Bernini dominated the Roman art world of the seventeenth century and flourished under the patronage of the cardinals and popes of the Catholic Church. Inside St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, among the splendor of the indescribable works of inspirational art and construction, is a fine alabaster stained glass window above the Chair of St. Peter. It depicts the Holy Spirit in the center as a dove surrounded by golden clouds and angels flying between rays of light. This precious window of Bohemian glass is divided into twelve sections as a tribute to the Twelve Apostles; a brilliant dove stands out against it, the symbol of the Holy Spirit, as the soul of the Church which never ceases to help and to guide. This replica of the stained glass above St. Peter's Chair is printed by a professional photographer onto transparent museum-quality cotton/satin cloth with archival pigments. The printed cloth is then hand-sewn with reeds to hold the cloth at the top and bottom. Because the reeds are hand-cut, sizes will vary slightly. Makes a perfect gift for Confirmation or RCIA. Exclusive to The Catholic Company.
