Stained glass in York Minster
The Great East window of York Minster is currently undergoing restoration. The window is covered with a large photograph, and the restored pieces are shown to visitors in a small dark room-hemisphere. There is space for five pieces of stained glass: four pieces are kept there all the time, and the fifth one is replaced once a month.
These are small fragments of one of the pieces. Chatty angels.
The stained glass shows Jesus Christ and the animal symbols of the four Evangelists. The calf is a symbol of Luke.
The eagle is a symbol of John.
The lion is a symbol of Mark..
The angel is a symbik of Matthew.
A trumpeting angel.
A dragon with seven heads is threatening a pastor (one head is not visible).
Everybody is scared.
Other fragments of the same piece. The level of detail is amazing: look at the ear ring.
An angel is reading...
Everybody is attentive...
They are listening...
Probably St John is looking up to Jesus.
