'Christ in Glory'
Tapestry Designed by Graham Sutherland
Woven in France and completed in 1962.
It took about 10 weavers over a year to complete.
The looms were made from 2 large tree trunks.
There are over 900 colors.
I think it is fair to say that the
tapestry is the first thing you
notice when you enter the Cathedral.
It certainly dominates the interior when you face it.
The next photograph was taken in the
Lady Chapel which is located
right below the tapestry.
The dimensions are 75 feet by 38 feet (23m x 11m)
It is about the size of a tennis court.
From where I was standing to take photograph above,
when I turned around this is what I could see:
This is a similar photo to the one I showed yesterday but this one
is taken with a flash. Hidden from view (by the
sculpture) is the engraved West Screen windows located at the
other end of the Cathedral and the Baptistry Window.
I will show you those tomorrow.
You must see the ceiling too as well as
a couple of the adjoining chapels.
