Cosmovitral: A Stained Glass Wonderland in Mexico

Until the 1970s, the Cosmovitral was an open marketplace for the people of Toluca, Mexico. After it shut down, the city built a huge and elaborate botanical garden. When it opened in 1990, the fountains, bridges and verdant life—now totaling 400 species—made it an attractive place. But the massive stained glass walls and ceilings made it stunning.

The stained glass collection consists of 71 distinct works by Leopoldo Flores, the most famous of which is the above piece entitled The Sun Man.
