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..
