All that is charming about provincial France is epitomized in the tiny village of Wissembourg, found on northeast point of Alsace, on the German border where hills become mountains. The towns name means "white castle," and it is an agricultural village, rich with folk music and steeped in tradition. This fairy tale town is home to the Church of St. Peter and Paul, which is the second largest church in Alsace.

Head of Christ is reproduced from an original glass panel installed in the church around 1070 A.D. Although almost 1000 years old, this magnificent stained glass panel is still resplendent in color and dignity. Christs halo is a luminous rainbow of colors, and His soulful, stately gaze seems to reach across the centuries, carrying the same holy message that inspired the artist so long ago.
