Grossmünster Cathedra: Zurich, Switzerland

German artist Sigmar Polke completed 12 modern stained-glass windows for this Zurich cathedral in 2009, just before he died. Although the windows look conventional, seven of them were created with thin slices of agate. Polke was nicknamed "the Alchemist" for his interest in working with and combining unconventional materials.
