This is a part of an impressive stained-glass skylight ceiling of the Palau de la Música Catalana.

This concert hall was designed in the Catalan modernista style by the architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner. Built between 1905 and 1908 for the Orfeó Català, a choral society founded in 1891 that was a leading force in the Catalan cultural movement that came to be known as the Renaixença (Catalan Rebirth). It was inaugurated February 9, 1908. In 1997, the Palau de la Música Catalana was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site along with Hospital de Sant Pau. (Source: Wikipedia)
