Dutch cathedral unveils stained glass of 9/11 attack





DEN BOSCH, Netherlands -- A new stained glass window in a Dutch cathedral that contains an image of the World Trade Center attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people was blessed on Sunday by a Dutch bishop.

The window, built up of about twenty different panes with representations of heaven and hell, has the WTC pane at the bottom showing "hell on earth", its maker Marc Mulders said.

"It was an assignment by the church to make a stained glass window that was related to the spirit of this time," Mulders 48, said on his Web site, adding that he sees the WTC attacks as an image that speaks vividly to all people.

The window in the Sint Jan cathedral in Den Bosch, a city in the south of the Netherlands, has attracted the attention of the world's media press because of the Twin Tower image, pastor Geert Jan van Rossem said.
