P6261770ac Leon Cathedral Santa Maria North Transept Rose
In the rose of the North aisle, Christ sits in the middle of a circle with 16 lobes; The centre symbolizes the Principle at the source of the duality manifestation represented by pairs of opposite lobes; The figure of Christ is surrounded by a first circle composed of 16 decorative lancets describing the radiance of the centre, its manifestation in its whole multiplicity; A second circle is made up of 16 spherical forms containing crowned beings playing the music of the celestial spheres, symbol of the harmony within the Cosmos; The crown depicts the sovereignty, the prophet's radiance, at once spiritual and temporal, as testified by the lily flower drawn in the lowest sphere; Around, the vegetable forms constituted of stems divided in two other spiral stems, which wonderfully symbolize the development of duality; Spain Castile-y-Leon Leon Cathedral Santa Maria de la Regla.
