From old motherboards to gorgeous stained glass

Dan, an Australian stonemason, turned a bunch of used colored motherboards into a stained-glass effect in a sandstone tracery window.

We've seen motherboards repurposed as art in a motherboard menorah , a motherboard Mona Lisa, and some funky Nike-inspired junk art , among other feats of motherboard magic. But we're pretty sure these stained-glassed windows from Down Under qualify as (forgive us), the mother of all motherboard artistry.

An Australian stonemason named Dan used a bunch of the used computer components to create a stained-glass effect in a sandstone tracery window. The pics, spotted on an Australian overclockers forum, pretty much tell the whole stunning story.
