Stained Glass Image of the Day: Matthew & Mark Windows, St John's and King's Park Church, Dalkeith (William Wilson)
St John's and King's Park Church, Dalkeith contains 4 windows by William Wilson, who has featured several times on these pages already.
The suite of windows consist of two paired lancets approximately 0.5m x 3m each in size, set in sandstone rebates. Each window depicts two scenes from the life of Jesus, capped by the emblem of Matthew and Mark, two of the Four Evangelists. Small graphical motifs link each of the scenes, which outline a chronology of Jesus' life when each is read from from bottom to top and L-R (e.g. Matthew and Mark, Luke and John).
