Easter Stained Glass

The stained glass in our church was created by the renowned Brussels glass painter Carpronnier. Our church must have attracted some wealthy Victorian patrons - there is a wealth of high-quality art like this that we certainly couldn't afford today! The detail on these pictures is from three windows in the same triptych in the East wall depicting Christ carrying his cross, crucified and his body being removed.

I always wonder whose faces the artust chose for the figures. Would have been quite something to think your face would be gazed upon almost 150 years later. Sent using BlackBerry® from Orange
