Stained Glass Image of the Day: Tiffany Window, Fyvie Parish Church

The Tiffany window in Fyvie Kirk, Aberdeenshire, is a monument to the folly of designing a  window and then adding a portrait head at a late stage.

This striking and dramatic stained glass window depicts St Michael, his archangel’s wings spread out against glowing blue skies and gleaming white clouds. The warrior angel, adversary of Satan and patron of knights during the Middle Ages, stands on the wheel of time, representing victory over evil.

St Michael’s face is very finely done and the whole window, with its jewel-bright colours, has that unmistakeable Tiffany look. This is a stunning example of the artistry of Louis Comfort Tiffany and the craftsmanship of the Tiffany Glass Company (later the Tiffany Studios.)
