In architecture, round windows usually have a mandala like design with even repetitions. Oddly, this one on a church wall has a five pointed star structure.

Em arquitetura, janelas circulares têm normalmente um desenho de mandala com repetições pares. Curiosamente, esta, numa igreja, tem uma estrutura de cinco pontas.

      1. It is a catholic church traditionally attended by the Syrian colony in town. Could it have any relation to arabian iconography? In Christianity, the five pointed star is related to Solomon, I think.
