Construction of the North Rose

The North Rose is credited to Jean de Chelles, and it is dedicated to glorifying the Virgin Mary, who is shown at the center of the 13-meter diameter circle. Her figure is surrounded by circles of prophets and figures from the Old Testament and judges, kings and priests of Israel and Judah. On the link below, you can follow an explanation of each of its petals:
