Hand blown round ball  glass ornament after Wyspianski irises fresco at the famous St. Francis of Assisi church of Krakow Poland.  In 1885 the  the eastern part of the church was covered with murals by the founder of the young  Poland Stanislaw Wyspainski, a contemporary of Gustav Klimt. The murals are mostly of flowers, and the irises are one of the amazing murals in the church. It has been adapted into a glorious tree ornament. Following Wyspiaski, the white and blue irises are set against a transparent dark royal blue background. A magnificent ornament paying homage to a great church and painter.
