Three men in a bakery work the dough into balls to be baked in the oven by the 2 men below. Donor window of the bakers, from the Apostles window, 1212-25, in the axial chapel in the ambulatory of Chartres Cathedral, Eure-et-Loir, France. This window represents the birth of the Church, as the apostles are the first pillar of the church and therefore has the site with the most sunlight to illuminate the colours. Chartres cathedral was built 1194-1250 and is a fine example of Gothic architecture. Most of its windows date from 1205-40 although a few earlier 12th century examples are also intact. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. Picture by Manuel Cohen
