This is a part of a Church floor in Wismar in Northern Germany.
This used to be the East of Germany, and during the Second World War many of the churches became unitended casualties and then lay in ruins becuase the DDR either chose not to invest in them or could not afford to ( not true across the board some were well restored.)
Since reunifications several have been either totally or partially restored. This church was partially restored. It struck me that this original window has been giving the same light for centuries in the same way, and there seemed a sense of peace in that.
