Beautiful Broken Window

One Monday a couple of weeks ago, we came to work and discovered that someone had shot out one of the windows in the stairwell.  It only made it through the outer pane of glass, and the glass must be shatter-proof, because none of the shards fell out. 

I think it is really neat, like some sort of very detailed stained glass.

Throughout the day, the sun hits it in different ways, causing it to sparkle and gleam.

 For some reason or another, the window hasn't been replaced yet. I sort of wish they'd leave it, or make the other windows match, in an arty way.

Of course, I don't particularly like the idea of hooligans shooting out our windows, but it is nice to know that the inner glass is sturdy.

Wow! Amazing it didn't go through the second pane of glass. Beautiful, I agree.
