Dorchester Glass Door

I've been away for a ten-day trip that took me to Oxford, Dorchester-on-Thames, Paris, and Birmingham.

 

Here in the lovely church of St Birinus in Dorchester is a new glass door that has been recently installed. The hand engraving on the glass is by Philip Lawson Johnston, and it depicts Christ as Pantocrator and Light of the World. The design is clearly based on the work of Sir Ninian Comper.
