Bottom Roundel - The Donation

Even though the this window was designed for my pastor to use as the background for a Power Point to go with his sermon, I decided to take use a little artistic freedom and play around a bit...

This roundel and stylized quatrafoil show the idea of how the donor of a window or relic often depicted themselves, or their family and personal heraldry on the donation.  I incorporated this idea into my window for fun more than anything, but it is a historically accurate way to sign a representation of a stained glass window.  The image is me passing the window on to the great Emmaus Road Cathedral de Laramie.
