Church of St. Nicholas 1 by Cyril-Helnwein Church of St. Nicholas 1 by Cyril-Helnwein
Looking out a window of the ruined remains of the Church of St. Nicholas (1170), County Kilkenny, Ireland. It is believed St. Nicholas' bones (whom Santa is based on), were brought back here by 2 crusaders.

For me the shape of this window is interesting as the church was built by Normans who usually did not have designs like this, and it is also the only window of the ones remaining that is shaped this way. I'm guessing the crusaders who brought St. Nicholas (originally from what is now Turkey) back to Ireland were inspired by the architecture of the lands they had "crusaded", as it is quite similar to architecture from that area.
