Weekly Photo Challenge: INSIDE

 

Inside the cathedral in Cologne, Germany: There was a controverse discussion in Germany about the glass window of the artist Gerhard Richter – not good for a believer, disturbing his prayers, when he has windows which do not tell a bible story? Featuring instead abstract art as liked by the Islam?

  22. Interesting discussion you raised here in this Cathedral glass window – very polemical for some, I’m sure. Still a lovely art work, nonetheless. I read your piece about the Colorado incident, and you’re right. In moments such as those, when everything seems meaningless, retreating into silence is the only way to go.
