The Fleur de Lys is the emblem of Quebec, and also of France. These panels are extremely symbolic, conveying great significance for the Fransaskois community of Saskatchewan.
This particular stained glass window in the Gravelbourg cathedral is made of dalle de verre glass. The Raults handmade this raw coloured glass, which is two centimeters thick and weighs 4 or 5 times more than conventional stained glass. The Raults developed a technique of using regular lead strips (cames) to support the thick glass by using smaller pieces of the lead and extra soldering. Thus, the pieces of the thick glass were cut and shaped, and assembled using lead cames.
