North Window of St Thomas the Apostle


Two weeks ago I showed you the South Window of St Thomas the Apostle.

Like the other windows, the designs all belong to William Morris.

This figure of St Thomas first appeared in 1874 in Calcutta Cathedral where it faces left. Here it faces right.

The figure of St Hilda was originally used at Paisley Abbey in 1876 to represent Salome. Only in Hyde has it been modified by the addition of a pastoral staff.

Absolutely stunning! The detail on John's robe and cloak is fantastic!

Can I claim that's me up there? But I'm no Salome, I think. ;D

They are lovely. I do like the pre-Raphaelites, so was glad to see some of William Morris' handiwork.

Beautiful & very appropriate for All Souls Day.
