The Orb
13-NOV-2012 Colin Storey

The Orb

York Minster

The Orb is an elliptical treasure house of stained glass, showcasing five examples of some of world’s most important medieval art. Described as England’s equivalent to the Sistine Chapel, the stained glass is intimately lit to reveal the craftsmanship and epic stories that make up York Minster’s Great East Window.

See below for a view of the other side of it....
