Sleeping Towards Sunrise

Sleeping Towards Sunrise
At the Abbey of Heiligenkreuz, in the Vienna Woods. This Romanesque sculptured tombstone in the middle of the Chapterhouse is the grave of the last Babenberg Duke, Frederick the Quarrelsome; he died in 1246. The rosette-window was at the World Exhibition in Paris in 1889, where it won the first prize for its colours and their composition.
