Stained glass sun in splendour painted and kiln fired with deep blue surround.
The Sun in Splendour is a delightful mediaeval symbol which was used by the Royal houses of Plantaganet and York. It was a heraldic device used by Richard II, Edward IV Richard III and Edward VI.
The image is perfect for stained glass, it can often be found in Churches and Cathedrals, and demands to be south facing, where the full glare of the sun can light it to its best advantage.
Measures apx 7.5" in diameter plus hook
183mm in diameter plus hook
In your south facing window, the image will move around the room on a sunny day!
Inspired by the archaeologists from Leicester University who found the remains of Richard III, I decided to research the iconography around this much maligned historical figure ...
In my browsing I found the Sun-in-Splendour, an heraldic device used by Richard, and remembered a sketchbook painting I made in 1992 of a copy of a stained glass window detail from Eltham Hall. I looked it out, and challenged myself to paint it on glass.
It takes a lot of concentration!
