These designs were also used to represent brave knights and saints from the medieval times. Many churches had stained glass in the windows to tell a story.

As time went on they were placed in city halls, banks, theaters, and castles just based on the fact that they were beautiful. From there people started making them into lamps and other pieces of art that you could put inside your home.
