The chapel of St Ludmila in Prague's St Vitus Cathedral features the beautiful stained glass Pentecost window by Max Švabinský. The Art Nouveau window depicts the event of the Holy Spirit coming down to the believers at Whitsunday.
The man in the window's right bottom corner is holding a large pretzel. This pretzel is not mentioned in the biblical description of the Pentecost; perhaps the pretzel was there and is just not mentioned, or the stained glass window was paid for/commissioned by a baker. Who knows ?!
