Stained glass windows filled with macabre X-ray images

Wim Delvoye has created a series of stained glass windows with subjects that are both gothic and unexpected, filling the spaces between the lead with X-rays of human intestines and skeletal forms of people kissing.

In 2001, Delvoye and a radiologist friend snapped a series of erotic and scatological X-ray images. Some of the pieces from his Sex Rays series made it into his Chapel and Stained Glass Window projects, presenting the profane where one normally expects the sacred.

You can see Delvoye's Sex Rays (NSFW) as well as more his Chapel and Stained Glass Window images in the X-Rays section of his website.
