The Beautiful Tradition Of Scottish Stained Glass


 

Historical Scottish Stained Glass

 
Deep in the Edinburgh National Museum, nestled artfully at the end of a long hallway full of some of Scotland’s most prized relics, hangs a towering window which, at first glance may not even catch your attention. But if the viewer stops for a good look and finds the stunning beauty of this prize window soon becomes apparent. A museum is the perfect resting place for such an intricately crafted stained glass window such as this, by one of Scotland’s leading stained glass artist–Douglas Strachan, whose many works include the north window of the High Kirk of Saint Giles and The National War Memorial at Edinburgh Castle.
 
The reclaimed piece was once a window on Montrose Old Parish Kirk, Angus and represents the intricate craftsmanship and lasting beauty of stained glass. This piece truly represents the distinct religious stained glass style near the end of the Victorian era. The beautiful meandering leading and prominent depiction of realistic figurines speak to its well-deserved place among history’s finest. While the stained glass of today may be drastically different in style and subject matter, the pure staying power of such a beauty never goes out of vogue.
