Building Name: St. Josaphat Church

Studio Name: Detroit Stained Glass Works, The

City: Detroit

Window Shape: 3 (arched)

Subject/Title of Window: Tulip Window

Brief Description of Subject: Non - figural clerestory window which uses a flower motif with the donor's name in the shield at the bottom. To me at least, the flower in the medallion at the top looks like a tulip. Tulips are a harbinger of Easter hence symbolize eternal life through the resurrection.

These are clerestory windows. There were originally 20 such windows however 2 were completely totaled and replaced with glass from the local hardware store -- not stained glass.

Inscription: Ofiarowala Wiktorya Dywelska. Translation from Polish: Donated by Victoria Dywelska.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.
