The coloured glasswindows on Athos have got a lot in common. They all seem to consist of a combination of bright coloured glassplates. One colour per plate. They are not all framed in lead but mostly in wood. There are no figurative elements, no religious themes like in western european churches. It is merely a combination of simple abstract forms: squares, circles. The simple and straight shapes makes them attractive. The simple geometry and symmetry forms a counterpoint with the busy church interiors.
