Three kings


The advent window at Saltaire's Methodist Church takes a suitably religious theme, that of the three magi journeying to Bethlehem.  This window was produced by members of the Art Group that meets in the Methodist church halls.  I like the boldness of the kings - such strong graphic shapes suit the medium, I think.

To see more of the windows from Saltaire's Living Advent Calendar, scroll through my blog or look at the web page hosted by the Saltaire Village website.

  1. Yes, the Kings have it, as you say, boldly drawn in a way that works.

  4. What beautiful windows! I love the color and the shading, as well as the theme. When I set out the three kings along with the Nativity, I always set them at the far eastern end of the top of the piano, for it's supposed to take them about 2 years to make it to the Christ child. :-)

  6. These are beautiful! I also checked out the link. I miss the windows in the Chicago stores where I grew up, always a sign that Christmas was coming.
