False "tracery" (actually a stone sculpture), the chapel window on the west facade, the palace of Jacques Coeur (c.1450), Bourges, Cher, France

The sculpture, not part of the window but free-standing in front of the glass, depicts two hearts (emblems of Jacques Coeur) supporting a large fleur-de-lys (emblem of the king, Charles VII).

A good description of the palace can be found here: www.37-online.net/gb/castles/bourges_gb.php
