In a stunning discovery, two stained glass windows, made in the distinctive style of Antoni Gaudí, have been found hidden away in a chapel outside Barcelona.
During an inventory by the Institute of Catalan Studies, they unearthed two beautiful pieces. One is an immaculate rose window containing imagery similar to the Masonic ‘all-seeing eye’ placed against a hand.
The other masterpiece depicts a sword-clenching archangel on a beautifully ornate stained glass window, 75 x 25 cm (30" x 10") in size.
According to the rector of the chapel where they were found, they had been hidden away. Until the Institute of Catalan Studies found them, he had no idea his predecessor had ordered the pieces from Gaudí himself.
