No image (in either the Western or the Eastern Church) permeates Christian art as the image of Madonna and Child.
Here is my take on this theme. The stained glass work is a part of the huge window in the Santa María la Real de La Almudena (or in short - the Almudena Cathedral)
I had thought to put together - in short the development of the theme in world history. But with the immense material available, I think it impossible to put a short note in TE.
Instead, I thought of mentioning a few of the "stained glass" creations that I would like to share and encourage a discussion.
Among the first that comes to mind is the very ornate Madonna della Salute of Sanctuary of St. Camillo, Milan.
Another beautiful piece was the stained-glass window in La Giralda, Seville, Spain.

A fine capture of this lovely stained glass. Well exposed with excellent colours and sharpness. A little too tight on the framing for my personal taste, but this was perhaps the effect you were aiming at.

A lovely perfectly lit stained glass image. You have managed the light with finesse. the colour saturation is wonderful and the sharpness allows the soft detail in her face to show
Thanks for sharing

I must agree whole heartedly, the Madonna and child is such a powerful symbol. I do spend a fair bit of time in churches and cathedrals, as the amazing artworks there make such wonderful subjects, as your capture clearly shows. What I particularly like about this is the expressions of the subjects, which to my eyes are quite unusual. I also think the clothing of the madonna is beautiful, but very different. The detail in stained glass can be truly amazing at times.
All the best

Very good shots of these stained glass works. Very nice & rich in colours with amazing sharpness. Even flat, they seem to have shape and volume.
Have a nice day,

Very impressive crop, you have captured some gorgeous glowing colors on the stained glass which give it such a great feel and striking contrast. Very elegant indeed while the eye is drawn to the intricate designs and those religious figures. Simple fabulous close up photo work, Congrats.
