Comper's Christ

Christ by Ninian Comper at the church of the Assumption, Ufford, Suffolk. It is a stained glass detail from the 1920s war memorial window. The full-size version here is approximately life-size.


I like the grain in the wood. I think that the sweat on his brow is actually condensation moisture that has dripped from the iron bar above. I was tempted to correct the angle in PSP, but I think it looks more dynamic this way.


His work from ten years earlier on a similar subject in alabaster at Great Ryburgh in Norfolk is here


more from Ufford here
