Golden Glass Jesus
Legend has it that a forlorn sailor (Roger II - King of Sicily) traveling in the early 1100's in the midst of a massive Mediterranean squall made a pact with Jesus - spare his life, and he would build a Cathedral in his honor. And washed ashore, alive, on the banks of the beach at Cefalu, Roger did just that -- and coated the apse with a massive golden glass face of Jesus.
