Stained Glass Image of the Day - Robert Burns Window, St Giles Cathedral, Edinburgh

I've just started posting a stained glass image on the Morning Glass Facebook page every day, and I'm really enjoying the process. So much so, that I've decided that I'm going to do it on this site.

The images will be fairly random - not windows I've made, just images I want to share. I'm hoping sometimes a theme will emerge, or even a chain of windows related by artist, or setting, or content.

Today's window is another window by Leifur Breidfjord, but a bit closer to home than the [image posted yesterday(http://www.breidfjord.com/works-in-public-buildings). The Great West Window of St Giles Cathedral, Edinbugh , installed in 1985, celebrates the life and work of Robert Burns.

The lowest section is mainly green, representing the natural world that Burns portrayed so vividly and so lovingly. The middle section contains many human figures as it celebrates human unity, regardless of race, colour or creed. The topmost tracery contains a glorious sunburst of love, blossoming “like a red, red rose”.
