"Inspired by visiting St. Augustine's Catholic Church in the Treme' neighborhood of New Orleans. I saw that the 10 stained glass windows in St. Augustine's were of white saints exclusively. Having taken pictures of stained glass churches in the U.S. and Europe, Black saints and angels in places of worship were and are rare, if not unheard of. This design is for a series of windows I'm making, "Black Stained Glass Angels""
