"Lamb Of God" Church Window

Dedicated to the memory of a deceased congregation elder, this church nave window depicts an ancient symbol of Christ, the Lamb of God. It shows a regal lamb risen from death to deliver victory to all who follow him. A golden halo sets off his head and purple, the color of royalty and passion, surrounds him. The window is made entirely of German mouth-blown glass except for the cross. In order to make the central Christian symbol visible when the church is used at night with interior lighting and no sunlight, the cross is of opalescent glass, specifically a neodymium colored, hand-poured glass. All the other glass is mouth-blown ("antique") glass, which is transparent and has striations and/or bubbles that add to its dynamism. Most of the lamb's body is made of clear reamy glass, a special mouth-blown glass with irregular bubbles seemingly suspended in flowing streams of glass. The window is constructed using traditional lead came techniques.

Dimensions: 36"x48.5" & 36"x21.5"
